The unit \"Parts of speech\" is a grammar review. It offers basic rules of English grammar. I completely agree that grammar is structure of a language. In my opinion it is also the foundation of communication because after studying grammar, learners become more accurate when using English. Grammar improves the development of fluency and is a mark of intelligence and education.Good overview of basic grammar concepts. It's interesting seeing the difficulties word order and pronouns pose. Native English speakers usually don't think about those things when they talk, but non-native English speakers have to learn that--and much of it comes down to memorization. Teachers need to be sensitive to this, because a lot of this already comes naturally to them.
