Benefits of English Grammar Exercises

English grammar practice is important because practicing English grammar will enable one to know all English basics and how to compose nice English sentences. It is amazing to find scholars in higher institutions of learning unable to compose grammatical error free sentences. This is simply because they did not practice advance English grammar at their early stages. One is supposed to be well conversant with all English grammar exercises right from lower classes and this will assure him or her enough practice on English grammar.
The knowledge on how English language is made up can actually help you in many ways. One of the ways is writing. Those individuals who can write grammatical error free content have a good foundation of English grammar. This means that they had enough English grammar practice right from childhood and this has made them shine in the language. It is not a surprise to find a native English speaker who cannot write a single grammatically correct sentence. The person had English as his or her first language but no effort has been done on advance English grammar. Therefore, undertaking English grammar exercises well can make you excellent in writing English.
It is worth to note that English grammar practice can actually help you not only in writing but also in speaking correct English. We note that those people who know how to write English can as well speak it out well. Pronunciation of English terms matters a lot and this is the area that actually need English grammar practice. Pronouncing an English word correctly indicates that you can also write it well. There are many English grammar exercises that one can go through and get enough practice.
Another benefit of English grammar practice is that it will help you in the study of other languages. English is the standard language that everyone is supposed to be conversant with. Without the knowledge of advance English grammar, then writing and pronunciation of terms in other languages would be a problem. Other subjects studied in school also require good English grammar. Such subjects include; geography, history, agriculture, economics and many more that require correct English grammar.

Across, Over and Through

On the other side (line) : across and over

Across and over can both be used to mean ‘on the other side of a line, river, bridge, road etc.’

  • His village is just across/over the border.
  • See if you can jump across/over the stream.

High things: over preferred

We prefer over to say ‘on/to the other side of something high’

  • Why are you climbing over the wall? (NOT …across the wall?)

On flat areas; in water: across preferred

We usually prefer across to say ‘on/to the other side of a flat area or surface’, or to talk about movement in water.

  • He walked across the field. (NOT … over the field)
  • Let’s swim across the river. (NOT … over the river)

But over is sometimes used in British English if there is no idea of arriving at the other side.

  • We often walk over the fields in the evening.

Across and through

The difference between across and through is like the difference between on and in. through, unlike across, is used for a movement in a three dimensional space, with things on all sides.

Compare:

  • We walked across the desert. (We were on the desert.)
  • I walked through the wood. (I was in the wood.)
  • We drove across the field.
* We drove through several towns.
