Grammar course: what you need to know

Still not sure how to learn English grammar? Let's look at some specific grammar lessons to put things into context. 

On GlobalExam, we’ve adopted an immersive and in-context approach to grammar learning. No more rigid grammar lessons or lists, we teach grammar as we go. Each time you complete a situation, you’ll be asked to answer questions that test your vocabulary, comprehension, and grammar. The exercises are automatically corrected, and every answer comes with a detailed grammar explanation to encourage learning.

In the example below, you must arrange the words to form a negative sentence in the simple present tense. Check out the explanation below to understand why the example sentence is correct, and more importantly, why alternative options are incorrect.

Essential lessons to help you learn English grammar

Now that we’ve whetted your appetite for language learning, it’s time to put yourself through your paces with some sample grammar exercises. If you’ve been looking for ways to learn English grammar online for free, this is a great place to start. We’re going to take some more examples from the GlobalExam learning platform, so you can also get a sense of whether online learning is for you.

Beginner level: What do you do every day at the office?

In this beginner-level situation, you’ll meet Lucy, Raphael, and Susan, three coworkers who discuss the upcoming six-month schedule. Each situation focuses on a new set of vocabulary and some key grammar points. When you complete this situation, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify three different types of pronouns;
  • Understand the difference between pronouns;
  • Use pronouns in business conversations;
  • Recognize business expressions.

Let’s take a look at an exercise.

In this example, you must type an answer to complete the sentence. If you analyze the sentence correctly, you’ll know that the blank requires a pronoun, such as “he”, “she”, or “it”. The pronoun in question must agree with Lucy, “she”.

Intermediate level: I was wondering if you’d be interested…

 In this intermediate-level situation, you’ll follow John and Lisa as they discuss his plan to convince Mrs Borris to sign with his company. The aims of this situation are to:

  • Talk about events that did not happen;
  • Describe a background event;
  • Make polite requests.

Let’s look at an example.

In this example, you must place the given words into the correct order to make a question. This intermediate exercise requires a good understanding of syntax and confidence with phrasal verbs. There’s only one correct response, so it’s one strike and you’re out!

In case you haven’t got it, the correct answer is: “Have you figured out what the company needs?”

Advanced level: We could have done so much together…

 In this advanced-level situation, you’ll meet Bill Gates talking to a reporter about how he manages competition and how things could have worked out with Steve Jobs. By the end of the situation, you’ll be able to:

  • Speculate about events in the past;
  • Comment on past actions;
  • Draw conclusions about a specific subject.

Here’s an example exercise.

In this example, you must fill in the blank to complete the sentence using an expression. This advanced exercise requires knowledge of idioms and expressions in English, as well as flexibility with grammar. Do you have any ideas?

If you’re not up to speed with English idioms, you might want to incorporate “pave the way” into your English lexicon!

If ease is what you’re looking for when it comes to grammar, GlobalExam is the place for you. We’ve designed a whole e-learning platform around making the mission to learn English grammar accessible, fun, and easy. Through interactive activities, varied exercises, and motivating goals and challenges, you can take your English from zero to expert without ever having to copy down a conjugation table or list of irregular verbs. When you join GlobalExam and become an online learner, you’ll get access to a whole range of grammar and vocabulary resources divided according to your goal:

Start by testing your level

When you learn English online with GlobalExam, it’s a personalized learning experience from start to finish. We recommend beginning your journey to learn English grammar online with a level placement test. Our whole Business platform is available in three levels: beginner; intermediate; and advanced. By starting with the placement test, you can identify your existing strengths and weaknesses and choose the pathways that will best help you progress to meeting your goals.

Plus, when you learn English on GlobalExam according to your level, you can shape your learning around level-based courses with defined pathways, score tracking and goals. This helps you to stay motivated and keep on progressing towards an objective.

The placement test is simple and only takes about 10 minutes to complete. The style of the test is much like the style of learning you’ll find elsewhere on the platform: we’ll ask you to watch a video and answer some questions ranging from grammar to vocabulary, easy to difficult. By the end of the test, we’ll have an idea on which of our resources are best suited to your profile.

Learn English grammar with a GlobalExam course

Once we know your level, we can advise you better on how to learn English grammar easily. We’ve devised three essential grammar courses to take you from beginner to advanced. Let’s take a closer look at the beginner course to find out how you can learn English grammar online with us.

The beginner English grammar course is made up of 21 “situations”. Throughout the GlobalExam platform, you’ll be confronted with our method of situation learning, where we introduce you to new grammar and vocabulary concepts in the context of a real-life scenario that you could encounter in your future work environment. Each unit is made up of a series of situations that link together with recurring characters and an evolving storyline.

In the grammar course for beginners, we follow Raphael, the manager of a hospitality company, who is taking care of the launch of a new project with a large hotel chain. The beginner course is part of a three-stage course, including the following three units:

The whole grammar course takes approximately 12 hours to complete and gets progressively more difficult, preparing you to face the end-of-course challenge. If you successfully complete the challenge, you’ll get a GlobalExam certification.

What is a GlobalExam certification?

Once you think you’ve mastered the skills needed to learn English grammar in one of our courses, you can take a certification test to prove it. The challenge takes around half an hour and has 30 questions, which change each time you take the test. Let’s take a look at an example question:

How to learn English grammar easily with GlobalExam?

To answer the above questions, you need to know certain grammar concepts and vocabulary areas. Can you easily identify verbs, nouns, and adjectives to anticipate which word fits in each part of a sentence? If the answer is no, the beginner’s grammar course is for you!

If we’ve convinced you that an e-learning platform could be an interesting way to learn English, you might also be relieved to know that that doesn’t mean you have to learn all by yourself. When you learn English online with GlobalExam, you can also take advantage of virtual lessons with qualified English teachers.

Once you’ve got a strong basis in grammar and vocabulary under your belt, you can test your skills in a virtual lesson either individually or in a group. Putting newly acquired knowledge into practice is one of the best ways to make sure that new concepts and terms stay with you for the long term.

GlobalExam’s virtual teachers are native speakers from around the world, trained to teach students just like you all there is to know in Business. For a one-on-one approach, you can book an individual 30-minute lesson, specifying exactly what it is you want to work on. If you prefer the idea of interacting with other learners and tackling one of our pre-selected hot topics, a group lesson is for you. These sessions are one hour long, covering one of the following themes:

  • Making a phone call
  • Planning meetings
  • Giving presentations
  • Participating in video and conference calls

If we hadn’t already convinced you that virtual lessons are a great way to learn English grammar online, let’s run through some of the key benefits to this method of learning:

  • Virtual lessons allow you to practice listening and speaking
  • Practice makes perfect – putting your skills into practice is the best way to consolidate your learning
  • Conversing with a partner in a group lesson allows you to build confidence
  • Our virtual teachers can offer you instant feedback
  • Lessons follow on from the platform teaching methodology

What’s more, learning online means an end to textbooks with long lists of rules and exceptions and conjugation tables. When you learn with GlobalExam and join our virtual lessons, you’ll be part of a user-friendly and interactive learning experience. Our virtual lessons are optimized for the best possible connection to allow for seamless learning and easy collaboration, and when you’re learning in a group, you can even access a shared digital whiteboard for working together.
