  • Hello, everyone. I'm George.

  • And today, I'm going to share four tips with you to improve your grammar.

  • But before I begin, don't forget to subscribe to Learn English with Cambridge, so you don't miss out on any of these bite-sized lessons.

  • Tip number one: Context.

  • Try to study natural English by using authentic materials.

  • These could be films, TV shows, books, magazines, newspapers, podcasts, games.

  • Anything that a native speaker would use.

  • Just make sure that you're interested in the materials themselves to keep yourself motivated.

  • For example, you might read about your favourite band, listen to a film review podcast, or change the language settings of your favourite video game.

  • (Speaking Korean) I'm a friendly robot, so please don't shoot me.

  • What does that mean?

  • Shoot the robot?

  • Shoot the robot.

  • (Speaking Korean) I said I was a friendly robot.

  • Sorry.

  • While using these materials, you can note down any unfamiliar grammar structures and then either look them up online or ask a friend or a teacher to help you.

  • Tip number two: Practice.

  • Make some example sentences and post them onto language exchange apps or websites to get free corrections.

  • You can also help someone learn your native language, too.

  • Tip number three: Memorize.

  • It's easy to forget the grammar structures you've studied.

  • But you can help yourself by creating flashcards.

  • Fortunately, there are plenty of websites and apps out there that assist you in creating digital cards that you can store and review on your phone.

  • I'd recommend adding a picture and making an example sentence that's relevant to you to make it more memorable.

  • I used to be in a band.

  • I used to be in a band.

  • Good times.

  • Or if you're a technophobe, you can create physical flashcards.

  • Tip number four: Invest in a good study book.

  • To add some structure to your English studies, consider investing in a good study book.

  • One that I would recommend is English Grammar In Use, Fifth Edition.

  • It has clear explanations, natural examples, and plenty of opportunities for you to practise.

  • There's also an index at the back of the book for you to look up any unknown grammar structures, and a quick test to help you work out which units you should study.

  • You could also download the English Grammar in Use Fifth Edition e-book, which is great for practicing pronunciation and for on-the-go learning.

  • You can find the link for the new Fifth Edition in the description below.

  • If you have any grammar tips of your own, please let me know in the comment section.

  • And don't forget to like the video and to subscribe to the channel.
