When I was in school, English grammar concepts used to give me nightmares. Prounouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs – all sounded Greek to me! And these are all important concepts from an exam point of view. Somehow, I managed my way past them. So, I have attempted to make the English grammar rules regarding these concepts easier for you. Below are some of the most common grammatical mistakes people do when it comes to pronouns, verbs, adjectives & adverbs. I have tired to present the rules in the most awesome unforgettable way so that it becomes easier for you.
So many of us are living two lives. One- on Internet and the other — ‘whatever remains from it’. There are people who spend a staggering 8-10 hrs online every day. That’s like – the whole of their productive day. Being online is fine. But how much of it is spent on social media? If it is more than an hour, there’s something wrong with you! This blog post is a humorous take on those hours you spent on FB, outraged and enraged over nothing, and 12 very simple ways of limiting social media time.
SVA or Subject Verb Agreement is a very important concept in English grammar. Many of the entrance exams (CAT, CLAT, GMAT, GRE, IELTS, TOEFL, BANK PO, NDA ) test students students on the rules based on subject verb agreement. Even after they are done, written aptitude tests / WAT (taken after you clear CAT by most top B-schools these days) will test your writing skills and mettle. Hence, SVA is one touchy topic where you do not want to go wrong! It makes all the more sense to brush up what you so happily left behind in school! This blogpost will give you ALL that you need to know about English grammar rules for subject verb agreement and how to use them when the questions appear in your entrance exams.
I am very sure this blogpost is going to disappoint one community – the residents of e.g. ‘XYZ Boys Hostel for Engineers’ who started reading this- hoping it to be a violent act of ‘Imagineering’ with pics from the movie as the name of the post.
A lot of people feel that English Grammar rules for articles, tenses & conjunctions are pretty tough. Articles, really? They are the easiest of the lot! But not to fret, it’s not quite late yet. And nothing that a little practice cannot beat. This post deals with English grammar rules for articles, tenses and conjunctions and how to handle them. In view of the constraints of time that a student / learner of English faces today, I believe that it will be all the more useful that fundas / rules on Grammar & English be given as briefly as possible to make a point succinctly. And that’s what I have tried to do here.
