    English Grammar

    Hello

    I am in the process of starting the CELTA course. I would like to start understanding the grammar used and in particular understand the various verb forms and verb tenses. I would really appreciate it if anyone can advise me on where I can find out about the aforementioned. I am a native English speaker and as I was not taught grammar at school, I am finding it difficult to relate verb forms and tenses. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Regards

    Lukman

    Note my correction above. There is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". Simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: English Grammar

    I also absolutely love the Online Writing Lab, the OWL, at Purdue.
    https://owl.english.purdue.edu/

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It's very useful in the early years of teaching too.
