Grammar is important. It has become especially important to teach grammar to a generation that thinks “Hey, wot R U ^ 2 DIS wknd. cht l8r” is a perfectly good sentence! Grammar lessons have the potential to cause your learners to roll their eyes and let out a painful sigh. So, when next you are confronted with this oh-my-gosh-not-grammar-again attitude, remind your learners of these 3 little facts:
- Poor grammar could have you labelled as ignorant. Someone who texts “Your being an idiot” has lost all validity and definitely lost the argument.
- Employers check the social media accounts of all potential employees, if the grammar mistakes in the CVs have not already put them off.
- Grammar is foundational to any language – no grammar and we all sound like crazy people.
