Many people think that in order to learn English, the first thing to do is to learn English grammar. Grammar is, of course, part of any language but you can learn it in a natural and fun way, without needing to memorize long lists of rules, and do boring repetitive exercises. How? Read on to find out more!
The most natural way to learn grammar is through listening and copying, just as children do. By listening to a new grammar structure used in a natural context in each of our interactive lessons, you can understand the use and meaning without needing long and complex explanations. You can then copy and practice it until you naturally produce it yourself.

Learn one thing at a time.
The Wall Street English method follows a meticulously planned program in which new language and grammatical structures are introduced gradually and separately over twenty levels. Focusing on one grammar point at a time is really important to enable you to become confident in using certain language when you speak.
Don’t over analyze and don’t translate.
Trying to understand or translate each word in a grammatical structure will probably confuse you more than help you, and it will block you when you need to speak. Listen and copy the entire phrase and understand what the complete meaning is.

Our digital workbooks provide a selection of exercises for each lesson that focus on every new grammar element. You can access the workbook from your phone, tablet or pc, whenever you want.
