Free English Grammar Worksheets For Your ESL Lessons

Grammar: It’s what holds language together, it’s crucial to speaking and writing well, it’s … sooooo boring.

If you hate teaching grammar (or even if you love it!) you’ll love these free worksheets.

They’ll help your students understand and practice things like that pesky past participle — and in turn become better speakers and writers!

Why Is Grammar So Important For ESL Learners?

Grammar is the structure of language: it’s how we put words together to create meaningful, widely understood sentences.

As native English speakers, we may have received some grammar instruction in school.

By and large, though, our grammar knowledge is innate: we don’t need to know fancy terms for what all the parts of speech are in order to speak correctly.

For non-native speakers, however, grammar is a lot harder. This is especially true because not every language’s grammar functions the same way.

For example, Chinese doesn’t have a plural form, and the way past and future tense work is different. Likewise, many languages such as Hebrew and French are gendered, so they refer to inanimate objects using the equivalent of “her” and “him”.

Because it’s confusing getting used to a new way of speaking, nonnative speakers should learn formal grammar so that they can understand how to put sentences together correctly and fluently in English.

How Can You Incorporate Grammar Into Your Lessons?

Worksheets are a really great way to have your class practice grammar.

When your students do a number of exercises practicing the same grammar concept (like future tense or indirect objects), they gain a better understanding of how the concept works in different settings.

Doing the work by themselves also forces your students to pay attention and try more, which will help them apply the grammar concepts they’ve learned in their own writing and speaking.
