How to Speak And Write English Without Mistakes!

How to Speak And Write English Without Mistakes!

I have a quick question for you…

Have you ever wanted to speak English properly, without making MISTAKES, so that you will feel CONFIDENT to speak English with others?

Or, have you ever wanted to be able to write in English, without making grammar mistakes?

So, why has not it happened yet? Come on… Admit it.

This is not the first time, you have been trying to learn, how to improve your knowledge, of the English grammar, so you can speak and write English correctly?
If you read the information on this page to the end, you will discover what to do, to improve you English grammar knowledge, so you can learn to speak and write English without mistakes!

Hey, my name is Deyan, and a few years ago, I was like you, trying to learn a new language, French….

I knew how to speak some words in French, and could say whole sentences, but, after some time, I discovered that I am still struggling to speak French correctly, so I was making grammar mistakes, after all that time of study! I was not feeling very happy at all, with my French studying results… It was disappointing for me! I was not sure, what was the best thing to do….

So, I became stuck in my French studying, and some times, when I try to say something in French to somebody else, I was not sure how to say things correctly… So, it feel like confusing for the other person, listening to me!

So the problem was, I was studying French, could speak some words and make sentences, but all that was wrong… I was not sure, how to speak correctly, so that people could understand…

So it was obvious to me, that it was just not enough for me to learn words and sentences in French! But I had to learn to say things in the correct grammatical way!

I tried to learn French, mainly by learning only new vocabulary, but it did not work well, for me speaking correctly with people, so I was still wondering what was the best to do!
Then latter, I started to pay attention, of how the sentences were formed grammatically, in a French text. That helped!

I tried to memorize how the different verbs were written in a sentence of a French text, and it started to help me to remember how to say the verbs in French, in the correct way!
There was a time, when I realized also, that I have been trying to learn French, in the wrong way, from the very beginning, just because I saw somebody, who is a polyglot, and speaks many languages fluently, to explain, that it was not necessary for me, to study the grammar of a language, if I wanted to learn the language fluently! So I believed him! No wonder, I was struggling!

So, the real problems was, that I have been listening to the so called “experts” of language learning, and that is why I got stuck in my French studying! Their so called “expert advice”, was keeping me, from making progress!

So, in the same way, it is not your fault, if you are still not able to speak English, without making mistakes!

Once I realized that in order for me to progress in my French speaking, without making mistakes, by the studying of the grammar, I also began to see the improvement, which comes from studying, how the verbs work in the sentences!

Just search and look at the Social Media, and you will find so many people, who speak or write in English, when they communicate with each other, but make many mistakes, because they have not been studying grammar, so they confuse others, by speaking English in the incorrect way …. And, you will also find, many other people, who show, that by studying English grammar, have started to speak English with less mistakes!
I have now realized, that by studying how the French grammar works in any text, helps me also to understand better, when I listen to a French radio, or to people talking in French… In a similar way, that will help you in your studying of English grammar too!

If you continue to learn English, without learning the English grammar, you will continue to make mistakes, and you will feel less confident to speak English with others! Also, you will not succeed at your job, if English is required, so you will have less chances to be employed! You will continue to make mistakes in English, when you use the Social Media, and you will not succeed at school!

Easy English Grammar-Determiners

Easy English Grammar Explanation

What Are Determiners?

The determiners, give a determination about a noun, and they give an information about a noun. They are used before the noun. They show the function of the noun. They show how the noun is used in a context. They show how that particular noun, is related to the rest of the text, and as such, are different from adjectives.

They do two things. The first thing is they identify things. The second is they quantify things, or show the number of things involved.

Determiners as IDENTIFIERS are giving more details about a noun.

For example, if you say ‘this car’, the determiner shows which car you are talking about. That determiner is called demonstrative, because it demonstrates something about a noun, ‘this car’. It identifies the car you are talking about.

Determiners can also play a possessive role. For example, when you say ‘my car’, it shows that you possess or own the car. This also is an identifying determiner, because it identifies which car.

When an article is used to show a specific thing, for example ‘the car’, it also is an identifying determiner, because it shows one specific car.

Determiners as QUANTIFIERS, show a number about things.

When a determiner is used as a quantifier, it shows how many things, you are talking about. For example, when you say ‘two cars’, it shows the number or the quantity of the cars, you are talking about.

Easy English grammar learning! Future Perfect Continuous Tense.

 

 

Quick English learning! Easy English grammar learning!

The Future Perfect Continuous Tense!

 

Two future actions – one is continuous. To speculate. To predict.

The future perfect continuous tense indicates an action, which will happen some time in the future, but which will start, at a particular time in the future and will continue, until some time in the future.

The important point about the future perfect continuous is that is has a time reference, which is the time when the action will start in the future, or the time when the action will stop in the future. If there is no starting or stopping time in the future, then it will be only a future continuous tense, to show an ongoing action in the future.

The future perfect continuous is about a longer action in the future, which is interrupted, by another action in the future.

Topic + WILL HAVE BEEN + Verb

‘By the end of the next year, she will have been living in Germany for 15 years.’

The ‘end of the next year’, is the interrupting action, which stops the future perfect continuous action ‘she will have been living in Germany for 15 years.’

There is duration of an action in the future, for some time, before it is completed or stopped.

English Learning Common Nouns And Proper Nouns

Common Nouns and Proper Nouns

A noun is the name of a person, place, or thing.
Nouns are divided into two classes—proper nouns and common nouns.
A proper noun is the name of a particular person, place, or thing.
Examples: Lincoln, Napoleon, Ruth, Gladstone, America, Denver, Jove, Ohio, Monday, December, Yale, Christmas, Britannia, Niagara, Merrimac, Elmwood, Louvre, Richardson, Huron, Falstaff.

A common noun is a name which may be applied to any one of a class of persons, places, or things.
Examples: general, emperor, president, clerk, street, town, desk, tree, cloud, chimney, childhood, idea, thought, letter, dynamo, cruiser, dictionary, railroad.

Proper nouns begin with a capital letter; common nouns usually begin with a small letter.
Note. Although a proper noun is the name of a particular person, place, or thing, that name may be given to more than one individual. More than one man is named James; but when we say James, we think of one particular person, whom we are calling by his own name. When we say man, on the contrary, we are not calling any single person by name: we are using a noun which applies, in common, to all the members of a large class of persons.

Any word, when mentioned merely as a word, is a noun. Thus,—
And is a conjunction.
A common noun becomes a proper noun when used as the particular name of a ship, a newspaper, an animal, etc.
Nelson’s flagship was the Victory.
Give me this evening’s Herald.
My dog is named Rover.
The Limited Express is drawn by the Pioneer.
A proper noun often consists of a group of words, some of which are perhaps ordinarily used as other parts of speech.
Examples: James Russell Lowell, Washington Elm, Eiffel Tower, Firth of Clyde, North Lexington Junction, Stony Brook, Westminster Abbey, Measure for Measure, White House, Brooklyn Bridge, Atlantic Railroad, Sherman Act, The Return of the Native, Flatiron Building.
Note. These are (strictly speaking) noun-phrases; but, since all are particular names, they may be regarded as proper nouns.

A proper noun becomes a common noun when used as a name that may be applied to any one of a class of objects.
The museum owns two Rembrandts and a Titian.
I exchanged my old motor car for a new Halstead.
My fountain pen is a Blake.
Lend me your Webster.
He was a Napoleon of finance.
I am going to buy a Kazak.
Certain proper nouns have become common nouns when used in a special sense. These generally begin with a small letter.
Examples: macadam (crushed stone for roads, so called from Macadam, the inventor), mackintosh (a waterproof garment), napoleon (a coin), guinea (twenty-one shillings), mentor (a wise counsellor), derringer (a kind of pistol).
A lifeless object, one of the lower animals, or any human quality or emotion is sometimes regarded as a person.
This usage is called personification, and the object, animal, or quality is said to be personified.

Each old poetic Mountain
Inspiration breathed around.—Gray.

Who’ll toll the bell?
“I,” said the Bull,
“Because I can pull.”

His name was Patience.—Spenser.

Smiles on past Misfortune’s brow
Soft Reflection’s hand can trace;
And o’er the cheek of Sorrow throw
A melancholy grace.—Gray.

Love is and was my lord and king,
And in his presence I attend.—Tennyson.

Time gently shakes his wings.—Dryden.

The name of anything personified is regarded as a proper noun and is usually written with a capital letter.
