National Grammar Day

National Grammar Day is observed across the United States each year on March 4th. On this day, you should do your best to use proper grammar. Americans are also encouraged to read a new blog, book, magazine, or newspaper to learn a new turn of phrase or try to learn a new expression from another language, since not all languages use the same grammar rules.

Teaching methods in the USA today favour oral and written grammar activities where form and meaning are linked, instead of isolated grammar lessons with drills and memorization, as in previous times. Concerns are now being raised by those so who believe that the pendulum has swung too far away from classical methods and that children are not learning grammar properly. Today will offer a great opportunity for debate.

We at das Seminarhaus don’t centre our teaching around 100% correct grammar build-up but primarily focus on the points needed for effective communication.

Maybe we should be stricter with our students today 😉 What do you think?

Check out this humorous take on grammar “crimes”. It will be a challenge for most learners since it’s sung very fast, but you can go to settings and reduce the speed.
