Top 10 Websites for Teaching

Top 10 Websites for Teaching | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Using grammar correctly could be challenging may be not for those who are English native speaker, but surely for those who learn English from scratch. English language and its difficulties can be very much puzzling. Although, a dictionary or software can assist learners but it cannot give accurate answer. In fact, word processing programs are not very much effective in correcting grammar errors completely.


Nik Peachey's insight:

This looks like a very useful collection to get students doing grammar research.
