A1-A2 grammar

Are you a beginner (CEFR A1) or pre-intermediate (CEFR A2) learner of English?

In this section you can practise and improve your grammar by watching our Grammar Snack videos. The videos show the grammar being used in natural conversations.

Decide which area of grammar you need help with today and choose a video to watch. Then read an explanation of the grammar point and do the exercises to check that you can use the language correctly.

Practising little and often is the best way to improve your grammar, so come back tomorrow to choose another Grammar Snack video. Good luck!
