What is grammar?
Grammar is the way in which words are put together to form proper sentences. Basically the systematic pattern of any language.
Grammar for ESL focusses more on how to correctly construct phrases and sentences that best express their intended messages.
Grammar provides ESL students the structure they need in order to organize and put their messages and ideas across. When teaching grammar, we should prepare the students to actually engage in communicative situations using appropriate language and patterns. This awareness enables them to pay attention to the form and structure of the target language and notice their own speech patterns that have been internalized in the said language.
