Learning grammar is central to learning any language. It is one of the most difficult aspects of langauge to teach. We don't learn grammar for its own sake, we learn it to learn how we use it in different situations, times and forms. Knowing grammar rules makes you confident in using the language in the given situation. The lessons of grammar given in this section of the website are prepared for their functional purpose. So emphasis is given to  the usage of grammar, and not on the rules of grammar.
