Grammar - Grammar doesn't have to be studied when you learn your mother tongue as a child. Children learn it in conversation with their parents or teachers. However, learning grammar when studying a foreign language is an essential tool. Grammar is the study of words and the ways words work together. It is very necessary to use the language in context when communicating with others in the target language. Below are the grammar concepts we will be studying and/or reviewing this year. There are links to activities that can help the students with the usage of those grammar concepts.

As we study the following grammar concepts, students will write explanations of the different concepts, add links and activities. If the grammar concept is a new tense, students will be conjugating the verbs from the chapters in those tenses. Students will compile a resource page that will help them throughout the year.

The links bellow explain the different grammar concepts through songs or videos.
Students should watch the videos or listen to the songs and practice each grammar concept.
