Grammar Rules: 5 Important Rules of Grammar for ESL Learners

Grammar Rules in English! Following are five important rules of grammar for English learners with example sentences and ESL printable worksheets.

Grammar Rules

Here is a list of five of the most common grammatical mistakes that are made by English speakers/writers. This list is merely a quick glance; these matters are dealt with in detail as well, in appropriate sections.

Subject Verb Agreement

Learners often get confused with using the appropriate form of the verb with the subject of the sentence. For example, ‘I live in Thailand’ and ‘He lives in Thailand’ is the correct subject verb agreement of the verb ‘to live’.

Possessive Nouns

Non-native speakers of English are unsure about showing possession while writing or speaking in English. For example, ‘The book belonging to the girl’ can also be referred to as ‘The girl’s book’.

Comparison of Adjectives

We add ‘er’ to compare short adjectives like pretty and thick, and we add ‘more’ for longer adjectives like handsome and intelligent.

Punctuation Mistakes

Punctuation errors, too, are very common, especially in the use of semicolons and commas.
