Children learn grammar without anybody teaching it to them. When children are little, they say "I gots a elephant." They hear older children and parents say "I've got an elephant" and a few years later they are saying "I've got an elephant." But it takes children about ten years to learn it, and they are learning their native language almost all day, every day. And their brains may be more receptive to learning languages than adult brains. Not all teachers teach the same way, not all learners learn the same way. But for me, some grammar is very helpful. Linguists observe languages and discover patterns in them. Grammar is just the way they name and describe the patterns they have found. I can learn faster if someone points out these patterns to me, instead of waiting to discover them for myself. Of course, it is also necessary to absorb them unconsciously, and too much grammar can get in the way. In my case, I was taught some English grammar in school, and my target language, Spanish, has somewhat similar grammar. When my teacher uses the terminology of Spanish grammar, I can see and make connections and relate it to my own language. That might not be true for every learner and every language.

Hi, You don't have to start with grammar necessarely! Start with what you really like (music, tv, cinema, newspapers, sport, anything really) and enjoy it. Not all of us learn in the same way. Grammar is important when we learn a language because we can express ourselves properly and effectively. However grammar should always be taught in a context (reading, listening or speaking activities). Ask your teacher to reduce the time of grammar teaching.

Of course, nobody is like nobody. It's at enjoy the alive. But in my case, listening and context before of the grammar is very working. Like you say, when i Will has more propriety with at langague english i think that at grammar will be better undestend to me.

其实从小在父母,周边人的影响和纠正下你是习得了语法的,句子该怎样说是对的你内心是有数的,只不过没有总结而已。很多从小学游泳的人也不懂得游泳的技巧一样,他们会游泳但没有总结过游泳技巧而已。
