Some common grammar rules that can help improve English speaking

There are some simple rules of grammar that will help you to avoid mistakes and become a fantastic English speaker. These include subject-verb agreement, tenses, and nouns. If you keep these rules in mind you will minimize your mistakes and will become a communication expert.

These are some things you should keep in mind while speaking in English


Many times, while speaking in English we make mistakes in singular and plurals. For example, the word people is a plural word meaning more than one person but many candidates use peoples for more than one person which is incorrect. Also another example is when people use woman’s as the plural of woman, while the plural of woman is women. Thus we should be careful while using singulars and plurals and not make these silly mistakes while speaking in English.


The verb in a sentence must agree with its is the corner stone rule. They both should be either singular or plural. Eg: A girl is driving a car. All the sentences that begin with each, every will have a singular verb. Each student in the class is hardworking.


You should brush up your knowledge of tenses as many new English speakers make mistakes in tenses. One should be aware of three main tenses: past, present and future and four subcategories of tenses: simple, continuous, prefect and perfect continuous.


Another mistake new English Speakers make is translating from Hindi to English. You need to understand that both these languages are different and have different grammar and thus if you translate between them you will definitely end up making mistakes while speaking in English.


While forming a sentence, the structure of the sentence should be kept parallel. For eg, she likes to write, travel and dance.

The above sentence is incorrect as the structure of the sentence is not parallel. The correct sentence will be: She likes to write, travel and dance OR she likes writing, traveling and dancing


This means writing the same thing twice.

For eg: She returned back from Paris.

In the above sentence returned and back mean the same thing, so the correct sentence will be She returned from Paris OR She came back from Paris.

Thus, by avoiding these silly mistakes you can become fluent and good English speaker which will help you grow and prosper in your personal and professional life.
