English Grammar - Practise the BasicsEconomies may grow or contract, travel may fluctuate or decline, but one thing seems to stay constant around the world: People want to learn English. Their motivation varies. It may be a matter of career, an aching to sing along with current music, or just the desire to engage in an international dialogue that, like it or not, is often going on in what has become a de facto lingua franca. But learning English is still tough, and let’s face it, can be kind of boring – especially when it comes to sorting out the finer points of speaking correctly.

But we at Babbel.com have perhaps done the impossible: we’ve made learning English grammar fun. Based on tried-and-true materials by the respected British publisher Collins, we’ve created a full, interactive online course that is not only modern and effective, but virtually pain-free. “English Grammar: Practise the Basics” uses our unique, intuitive and entertaining approach to help those still in the early stages to build their skills and confidence – at their own pace, without the expected hair-tearing or embarrassment.

We also understand that often a major discouragement for learners is the cost of quality teaching. That’s why we’re offering access to the course – currently made up of 20 tutorials and constantly growing. It’s available anywhere, anytime, and can be canceled whenever. There’s an introductory trial tutorial, “This or That,” for free, and then a 20-day money-back guarantee. Click here, register easily if you haven’t already – don’t forget to set your learning language to English – and try out the free preview. For our press release, click here.

Linguistically there are two techniques for improving your lexical strength (vocabulary) :

Active learning and Passive learning

1. Passive learning: New words are acquired subconsciously, while doing some daily life stuff, like reading a newspaper.

Vocabulary is an abstract skill due to reasons like reading habits, family background, schooling, culture etc. The conventional methods are very generic and are made of masses. They do not allow personalized learning to an individual’s current vocabulary.

2. Active learning: Active learning methodology has become a preferred way to change the traditional teacher oriented classroom into the newer student oriented approach to learning. In active learning, acquisition of new words is done with conscious and great efforts.

Usually active vocabulary building is quite rigorous and boring due to its monotonous nature.

Now introducing myself, I am co-founder of Improve Your Vocabulary – VocabMonk

Vocabmonk uses an artificial intelligence algorithm to track individual’s learning/quiz data and mashed up that data to recommend personalized quizzes to students, based on their current vocabulary size.

The tool uses game mechanics to make learning real fun and also provides competitive learning through challenges in your social circle.
There so special push towards, not just learning words but grasping it with application.

Various levels to be achieved as you progress in learning and the distinctive feature is that you can invite your mentor to look up your activities on the website.

Happy learning!

Learn English at the most convenient way at our own homes would definitely be the “in” kind of thing since with the comfort of our own homes we can make difference.

Hi. Thanks for publishing this article. Very interesting proposition for English grammar learning. I agree that grammar is important, but I think we should not concentrate on grammar learning. Instead we can learn it while listen a lot of spoken English. At least I try to learn this way :)

It’s great to see someone else who makes learning the English language a lot of fun – nice work!

Nice article! My motivation for learning English language came from the need to acquire a job in Multi National Company. Even if you are good at your work but you are not able to communicate with your seniors in a proper manner, you wont get the results that you deserve from your work. Grammar plays an important roll in having an effective communication with other in any Language. Due to Globalization you find English as the most commonly spoken language around the world. So for me it was the need of the hour to learn English Grammar and communicate with the seniors effectively.

definitely that learning english on the web is getting more easy in now days,i think that should take that course,it saving lots of time…

English language nowadays play a very important role in our everyday life. It is important to get a job, to continue higher education and for plenty more reasons. English being a global language, is very important to learn and communicate.
This is a nice way hear to learn it with fun.
