A phrase that gives students motivation for grammar.
« on: March 19, 2014, 06:39:30 AM »
You might be surprised because you could think that I am posting about grammar. However, it is about reading and writing =].
The grammar is an essential element to help students get better understanding and production in reading and writing.
I think we should let students know that grammar is a tool in terms of reading and writing instead of insisting that grammar be the most important factor. The example below will give students the sense of agreement to the statement.

'no one like you'

This noun phrase could be totally misunderstood if students have lack of grammar information because the 'like',a preposition in the phrase could be seen as a verb in a sentence. It would be a good idea for teachers to use this phrase, when students seem to have a dull time. It can give them motivation with the interesting phrase.
