There are SO many videos on YouTube that can help you improve your English grammar (and much more!). Search for a video lesson about anything you want to study. You can start by searching for: beginner English grammar.
You will see many choices for videos. Which one should you watch?
How much time the video takes – 5 minutes? 30 minutes? 2 hours?
How many people watched (viewed) the video
(1.3M = 1.3 Million = 1,300,000)
(14K = 14 Thousand = 14,000)
When was the video put on YouTube – 2 weeks ago? 8 years ago?
When you find a video you like, you can look for more videos by the same people. Many people have a “channel” – a group of their videos – that you can go to on YouTube. Examples of some good YouTube channels for English learners are: Jennifer ESL, EngVid, and Rachel’s English.
Kahoot is a free app where you try to answer questions about many topics, including English, in a game-style way. You get points for answering a question correctly – and quickly. Let’s try a 5-minute Kahoot especially for beginners on this blog:
– I don’t know nothing about cooking.
– I’m not doing nothing.
– She didn’t say nothing.
– He won’t do nothing.
– I don’t know anything about cooking.
– I’m not doing anything.
– She didn’t say anything.
– He won’t do anything.
Use Anything instead of Nothing in negative sentences that contain the word “not” (including don’t, doesn’t, didn’t, can’t, couldn’t, won’t, wouldn’t, isn’t, wasn’t, aren’t, weren’t, hasn’t, haven’t …)
The ESL Blues website has a set of “progress tests“. When you take a progress test, it will ask you questions about different grammar points, or vocabulary. For each question you get incorrect, it will show you the grammar point you got wrong – and a practice exercise to help you understand.
For example, one of the progress test questions is:
This is your book, not ____. That is my book over there.
b) of my
d) to me
If your answer is not correct, you will see this: My, mine, her, hers, etc. (It links to a practice exercise about “mine”, which was the correct answer)
