Why learning (or teaching!) Grammar is the easy way out!

It’s much easier to study the poster on the wall at the gym, to learn what push ups and pull ups do for your muscles, than actually doing the exercises! πŸ™‚

And it’s just the same with learning or teaching grammar. Β  It’s the easy way out. Β Your brain always wants the easiest path, it’s quite normal.

So when given a choice of risking potential embarrassment at speaking, Β the 100s of hours of speaking practice needed to get fluent and the brain power needed to do it or ….. memorizing a list of grammar rules with your head down on a desk, which option does your brain choose?

Now, we all know that leads to really bad results (how many people do you know who get fluent from high school English classes?)

So how do we solve it…. check out the video!


P.S. Β It’s -13 degrees out today so I wanted to show a nice sunny video to keep things nice and warm πŸ™‚

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
