Grammar Level 1- Lesson One

Welcome to our English grammar lessons organized in 7 levels plus coverage of Prepositions and Pronouns. For beginners, to achieve the best results, you should follow lessons within each grammar level one by one and move to the next level only after finishing all lessons and quizzes of its previous level(s). Also, almost all grammar lessons include a quick practice test inside lessons as well as a quiz on the outline page of each grammar level.

If you are an intermediate or advance level student, you can go directly to a specific lesson or only practice quizzes from a specific grammar level.

What you learn from your grammar lessons should be applied to your writing, speaking and listening practices, so make sure to include all 4 (writing, reading, listening and speaking) skill practices in your routine (like weekly) lesson plans.

In this first grammar lesson, you learn about Present Tense in English and how to use it in your English conversation and writing. Just follow examples and write them down a few times to learn them very well. After finishing this lesson, you should work on its quiz.
