    Re: Question

    NOT A TEACHER.....

    Since I'm Thai and my english is not my mother tongue, I should be qualified to answer this question.

    I don't know what grammar syllabus is, but I assume that you are asking what it is that you need to know about grammar when you are the beginner who learn English. It seems to me that you speak English well and your native language is Persian. Can't you answer that question yourself?

    If you ask me I would say that learning how to contruct the sentence properly first.

    There are many different syllabuses and there are differences in the order that items are taught, as well as syllabuses that are not based on or purely based on grammar, so there's no single correct sequence for items. For instance, in the past syllabuses tended to teach the present progressive before the present simple, now some do and others go for the simple form first. However, they generally teach simple forms before complex ones, but with variations in order.

    Re: Question

    Thanks for responding, Actually I'm asking provided that U are supposed to follow up a regular methodology for teaching people whose first language is not English, Is there probably some sort of standard grammar plan which is almost always fixed by priority that can be applied based on requirements in various occasions and not only about tenses.

    As Tdol's said, there's no one fixed syllabus you could follow, but if you need some point of reference, you can check your country's national syllabus for schools or go through various course books to check how the syllabuses are designed there. Comparing them should give you an idea which items come first, which of them you could move around more freely, and which ones are introduced relatively late.

    You can for example get grammar syllabuses (still quite common), lexical (they list lexical items, collocations, idioms, put vocabulary in topics, there's word formation, connecting and linking words etc.), situational (real life situations e.g. Eating a meal, In the street; often used for learners with specific communicative needs, for example business or tourism), topic-based (Food, Family), functional (promising, inviting, offering etc.), notional (number, time, place, colour, man, etc.), procedural (map reading, doing scientific experiments, story writing), mixed (include a bit of everything) and more.

    Dear FRIEND!
    I appreciate your help.
    YES I guess You're right about referring to some international sources but I doubt if the domestic ones about grammar plans here are helpful.
