      Hi Doaa,

      That’s a good summary of the video. Improving your grammar step-by-step is a good strategy to use. By identifying your weaknesses, you are able to focus your time and energy on those grammar points.

      There isn’t a magical solution. It’s basically practice, practice and more practice.

      I’m looking forward to more comments.

    Hi Jennifer,
    I watched the grammar video. I can improve my grammar by doing more grammar exercises and speaking more books.

      Hi Elaine,

      Yes, you can definitely improve your grammar by doing grammar exercises and reading more books. When you read, be aware of the sentence structure and analyze the sentences that you think are good. Then try to imitate the structure of those sentences by writing your own sentences.

    It’s the best way to improve my English by paraphrasing, and I will insist on doing it if I have enough and energy. I hope I can do it even though it is very hard.

      Harris, paraphrasing is a very useful skill to have. While it’s true that it is difficult to do at first, it will get easier with practice. It forces you to think in English (which is a good thing).

      Thanks for leaving your comment.
