Abstract

Grammar is undoubtedly part of a language. Therefore, teaching and learning English grammaris indispensable to teaching and learning English. Poor English grammar will definitely make learners fail to communicate effectively in English. However, English grammar will only help if it is communicatively taught. That is to say, teachers should introduce English grammar in contexts and create practice activities that are close to situations in real life. In this article, the writer gives her own reflections on using some communicative activities including Information-gap activities, Jigsaw activities and Board games in teaching English grammar in the context of the People’s Police Academy.
