It's high time we got into exploring how we can integrate computers into our lessons to teach grammar.To help us get started, 

Larry  has already posted a selection of favourite links (from his site) for this to our community blog .

Here come a few of my favourites!

The Grammar Aquarium: notes, online and printable exercises (not just on grammar, but mostly). Regularly updated.

English Page: lots of tutorials and clearly organized online exercises for online practice.

UsingEnglish.com: Resources for English as a Second Language - notes and several quizzes, each of which can be printed

or tried online. http://www.usingenglish.com/ 

Zona ELE - Notes on Spanish grammar (for Mexico and Spain, I believe)

A tu aire - Demo: several online interactive exercises (their home site has some sections for English learners too, but I

haven't explored them!) http://www.wordsandtools.com/atuaire1demo/



Ana Maria from Brazil


 These are the sites I'd like to recommend:


http://www.oup.com/elt/global/products/englishfile/preint/ This is a site I normally use with my Pre-Intermediate students. It's

the oficial english file site. What I like about it? Well, my favourite activities are the games and the pronunciation activities.


http://www.agendaweb.org/ This other site offers different activities (grammar, vocabulary, listening, reading)

I like the variety of activities suggested.

You don't need a password or anything. Have a look:
http://www.oup.com/elt/global/products/englishfile/preint/i_games/  (pre-inter level)
http://www.oup.com/elt/global/products/englishfile/elementary/i_games/ (for elementary level)
http://www.oup.com/elt/global/products/englishfile/intermediate/i_game s/ (for intermediate level)

I also use the Better-english site for grammar exercises.


I´ve just found a lovely article "Explaining Grammar with Metaphors" which I´d like to share with you. (the article was

written by Simon Mumford)

Here are some grammar sites that I find useful:


330 Grammar Topics: University of Victoria, Victoria, BC (Canada)



Salzmann Grammar Homepage—Grammar Points: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign


Charles Darling: Guide to Grammar and Writing—Index


E. L. Easton: Grammar Links



I have other links that I could also add, but I particularly like the ones above because each one contains items

that are difficult to find elsewhere.

Feel free to check out or copy any of the grammar links in my blog:

Veronica Baig

The English Grammar Handbook is a complete grammar reference available online through the Athabasca

University Write Site. I hope you find it useful. There are other grammar materials on this site, too, but

EGH is the most comprehensive. http://www.athabascau.ca/courses/engl/egh/

Thanks Veronica:
I explored the Handbook,  it looks very useful.

Here are a couple of sites that I've used, the level is more for intermediate to advanced, in fact, both of
them were not specially made for L2 learners. They still seem very useful, though.
My favorite is : http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handouts/grammar/ Note the connection to writing.

Then there is: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/ which tends to look at grammar from the point of view
of the sentence and paragraph- also with a look at writing.

Here is  ESL Blues.  It was created by a teacher at my college who has now retired and is chock full of grammar exercises. Students
can take a diagnostic test to find out which grammar points they are weak in, or they can go straight to the specific grammar points. The
double quizzes in particular are fun as they test knowledge as well as the grammar points. http://ww2.college-em.qc.ca/prof/epritchard/

This is the index page for additional exercises relating to the content of the textbook, Exploring Language Structure:

a Student's Guide, by  Thomas E. Payne, Cambridge University Press, 2006.

 I found this page and wanted to share it with you.  EnglishPage

  Grammarman brings grammar activities using comics and movies. I also found two of their videos on YouTube,

using Coyote and Road Runner:  (present continuous)  (past simple)


Lewis and Clark has an impressive collection of links on their webpage - and not just about grammar! Here is the link: http://www.lclark.edu/~krauss/toppicks/toppicks.html

Hi, Mónica. I loved Grammarman.
Captain Nelba:)


Larry Ferlazzo

There's new (to me, at least) grammar link from the BBC.  It's excellent for beginners, since there's audio and text support: 
Thanks Larry,
I really like the game. It's really good for beginners.I'm starting to add new links to our Blinklist,then I'll go for Del icious.
Hugs, Susana
Super link, Larry, thanks

 Here's our collection for Grammar Pages


Some time ago we started embedding youtube videos and grammar into quia ( http://www.quia.com) exercises. Examples here http://www.thomas.org.br/new_ctj/stuff/stuff_efolder.php?folder=394&menu=#3

Mariela Sirica from Argentina

I am sending an interesting link.   http://www.eslbase.com/resources/
In order to browse the page you need a usurname and a password which you can do it on the spot.An e- mail  will be sent to
you in a  couple of seconds and then you can start having a look at the page.

Dennis Newson from Germany

I refined my search to find communicative English grammar activities - and there were not that many.
Has anyone posted this?    http://www.esl-galaxy.com/board.htm


Andrea Giordano

  I want to suggest   English Tenses with Cartoons.

English Grammar Secrets  and English Grammar Lessons are two websites that offer explanations and cool flash exercises.
 Marina Alfonso

http://studio4learning.tv/ is an interesting site. It offers useful educational videos.

Here's another page: http://www.angelfire.com/fl/espanglishtips/ This site is dedicated to the most common errors found among speakers of Spanish who are learning English.

http://www.englishmedialab.com/index.html This is a useful website dealing with grammar and writing. It gives grammar definitions, rules, quizzes, examples, polls, and it explains how to write academic essays. Moreover, there is an interesting explanation of punctuation.


skillswise from the BBC is great

I don't know if you've already mentioned: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/

http://web2.uvcs.uvic.ca/elc/studyzone/330/grammar/index.htm : explanations and exercises.
