Well.. guys, I had been thinking for a long time to write this post but I don't know what stopped me. Well I just wanted to say thanks to all of the teachers and students who have helped me with my grammar. Two months back, I wasen't able to differentiate between noun and verbs. I know most of you must be thinking what a jerk I am but thats the way I was. But now with the grace of God and with your help, I am far much better and the whole credit goes to the EnglishForward team.
But still I think I have a lot to learn. I mean, now I can learn further on my own but I don't know where to start. A major problem that I face is with the structure of the sentences and with the explanations that most of the teachers/experts give on this forums. They always talk like "adverbial cannot be used in this part of the sentence, plain infinitive can/cannot be used in this part of the sentence." Sorry I don't have any relevant explanation with me from the forum but I hope you guys can understand my problem. Actually, I have learned english in a very abrupt manner. Sometimes I used to start learning nouns, then I used to switch to the adverbials and then to something else. The point that I am trying to make is that is there any source on the internet where I can learn step by step (as we do in schools). If not, can someone guide me or give me a basic but thorough plan of how to polish my skillls or give me some source where there is a list of rule for grammar. I know this is too much to ask but I need to learn and I hope that you'll help me.
Once again, thanks everyone.

Hi GB,

Thanks for the kind words. It's been our pleasure to try to help you. We hope you wil continue to ask questions.

It may be an old-fashioned suggestion, but have you tried using a good grammar book to approach English systematically?

Best wishes, Clive

I agree with Clive that GB should read books on grammar and English usage. If you want to improve your vocabulary, you've to consult dictionaries often. So if you want to improve your grammar, consult books on grammar and English usage. However, I wonder whether it can be described as an old-fashioned suggestion. On the contrary, I think it is a practical suggestion.

Thanks for the suggestions but there is a problem with the books. Usually the books provide with the very basic knowlege about grammar as compared to with what I get on websites and this forums. But I think that I should strat reading a book and then ask questions here about further details (if I need any). Hmm.. that would be fine.

your english seems good.
Hi

I was in the same shoes half a year ago as you are now, when I

in English.

Half a year ago I posted this:

Through sheer determination, commitment and enthusiasm, although still only vaguely seeing the end of the tunnel, I have come a long way with my grammar studies.

This forum helped me a lot, which I greatly appreciate.

Keep on inundating us with grammar questions, and if I can, I will answer.

But I think that I should start reading a book and then ask questions here for further details.

That sounds a very good plan! We can fill in the gaps.
