Teaching Grammar: Fun and Personalized Grammar Activities


Sometimes the limited number of grammar exercises and activities in course books makes ESL teachers spend more time searching for some additional grammar tasks that are relevant to their students’ interests. Some teachers even end up creating them from scratch.

It might be exhausting and frustrating, right?

If so, you are on the right path if you’re reading this article! 

Here we’re going to share with you some tips and ideas on how to make these additional exercises in just a matter of seconds!

Teach grammar in context

Teaching English grammar in context is crucial because it allows students to see how grammar rules are applied in real-life situations. 

We are going to use the AI power of Twee.com to create texts with a particular grammar point in the “Create a text” tool. After that, with a bit of magic from the “Matching Halves” tool, we divide some sentences into two halves. Then we can ask the students to find and match the correct halves. This activity offers a fun and immersive way for students to practice and consolidate their understanding of the grammar point in a meaningful context.

Implement grammar chunks in speech with “Discussion Questions”

It’s important for your students to practice using the grammar rules and chunks they have learned right away during the lessons.

Twee’s “Discussion Questions” tool can help you whip up some truly thought-provoking questions that include your target grammar structures. Just input the subject and the grammar topic, and voila! You have questions ready to spark those classroom discussions and help your students strengthen their grammar skills.

Is it possible to make “Fill in the Gaps” exercises dynamic and personalized?

Totally! There are many ways to do it on Twee! One of our favorite ones is to use the “Four opinions” tool with the grammar that you want to practice and make some gaps in them in the “Fill in the gap” tool. After filling in the gaps, the students can share their opinions on the subject mentioned in the exercise. By personalizing the exercise, they are actively engaged in the learning process and can learn and practice grammar skills in a more relevant and engaging way.

So, are you ready to sprinkle a dash of novelty and relevance into the way you teach grammar?
