English grammar for students
Beginning of Grammar:
English has a set of rules and every rule must follow if we want to so it is grammatically right. The ‘correct way to speak or write English’ is sometimes referred to as grammar.
A lot of people were confused about what this so-called “grammar” is actually all about. But you should know that it does not focus on letters or anything like that – as such doesn’t really exist (only in Greek Mythology).
Grammar focuses entirely on sentence structure, especially the way words go together, and which words occupy which position in relation to others! If you’re ever unsure of yourself regarding any written form of the English language, then simply look up some current works and see how published books and other online materials arrange their content. There’s always a pattern: This helps you understand how sentences ought to be structured similar to reading a storybook, except now we’re focusing on large print.

It additionally consists of “Prefix” and “Suffix”, prefixes in the main like the word “willing” if we added another word before the main word willing like un-willing now “un” is prefix. Now another word added after “willing” like “willingly” now “ly” is a suffix.
