English Grammar Terms: Reference Sheet
I have created a reference sheet of basic English grammar terms. This sheet will be useful for new English teachers who have yet to master English's basic grammatical terminology. Students who are interested in grammar might also find it handy as a reference.
It covers basic verb tenses (simple, continuous, and perfect tenses), terminology related to verb forms, conditionals (1,2,3, & mixed), and a few other points. In my opinion, a conversational English teacher should be able to identify and explain, at minimum, the following grammar terms:
- verb tenses
- 1st, 2nd & 3rd conditionals
If you cannot identify these items, study this reference sheet or print it and bring it to class with you.
