YaddaSpeak's curator insight, January 10, 2015 8:54 AM

What's good here is the attempt to peel back the rhetoric and get to the sweet pulp of ideas: how we express notions through form = grammar. Any attempt to disambiguate fancy rhetoric is good, and so that makes this site both good and interesting. And that's not bad.

 

But, has he...

...oversimplified English grammar? ...shown ignorance of historical grammar from antiquity until the present? ...reinvented something Halliday already did better? ...even read Chomsky? You decide.

This is one of the best sites I have found to reinforce grammar. Then leave grammar alone to do the writing separately.

Movie Segments to Assess Grammar Goals

This is a real find!  Claudio has put together a whole collection of video clips with accompanying worksheets to give learners practice in various grammatical structures.  There is such a lot of work in this and I think it'd be a memorable way to contextualise language.
