FREE Grammar Worksheets

Grammar can often be very difficult to teach and just as difficult to learn - but Busyteacher.org has 11,239 printable grammar worksheets in different categories. Whether you're looking for worksheets on a specific topics, like movies, nationalities, or music; or on a specific area of grammar, like tenses, gerunds, prepositions, or modal verbs, BusyTeacher.org has got you covered. All 11,239 of our printable worksheets are completely free to download without registering or logging in, and every single one of them was created and submitted by fellow ESL teachers from around the world.

The worksheets below will help you supplement your lessons, and will also provide additional practice for your students. Our worksheets serve as great gap fillers during lessons, to help your students retain the grammar learned during the lesson. In addition, you can print out each worksheet for your students to take home, so they can continue to practice in their free time. The worksheets below are unique in that they come in various styles. Some are purely for grammar practice, some are colorful with several illustrations for young learners, and some have sound files or are in power point presentation format. You can sort the worksheets below by most popular, latest, and most downloaded.

The worksheets also show which level of ESL learners they're for, which will make your search for a suitable worksheet for your class a breeze. Some of the worksheets aren't limited to just one level or category. You may find that a worksheet can be used for beginner and/or intermediate students. When you find a worksheet that looks useful to you, just click on the thumbnail of that worksheet and preview it before downloading. These worksheets are great for the current style of ESL communication-based education, where you and your students practice language together, rather than just working in a lecture format. As you probably know, using this format is extremely useful, because there are so many exceptions to grammar rules - especially in areas like clauses or passive voice. These aren't areas that students can just memorize by taking notes in a lecture – they need to produce and work with the grammar. That's exactly where these grammar worksheets come into play. They're are not only great resources for the classroom, but also great homework assignments and practice work for students. With the help of these worksheets, students can familiarize themselves with how and why certain grammar topics are used and needed.

And one more thing: if you've created any worksheets that have found to be especially useful in your classroom, sharing is caring! You can submit your worksheet, and share it with other ESL teachers around the globe, right here on this website. At the bottom of the page, click “Submit a worksheet” to add your own worksheet to the collection. Join the thousands of other ESL teachers who use BusyTeacher.org every day.

GRAMMAR TIP:What Is Grammar?
English grammar is the body of rules that describe the structure of expressions in the English language. This includes the structure of words, phrases, clauses and sentences. A text that contains more than one sentence is no longer in the realm of grammar but of discourse. The grammar of a language is approached in two ways: descriptive grammar is based on analysis of text corpora and describes grammatical structures thereof, whereas prescriptive grammar attempts to use the identified rules of a given language as a tool to govern the linguistic behaviour of speakers.
