How to learn and improve English grammar
Learning about grammar and learning grammar are two different things many learners confuse. Reading about a grammar rule and doing a few exercises don’t guarantee the rule is “automatic.” Your goal with every grammar rule must be to internalize it and learn to use it intuitively.
The best way to achieve that intuitive automation of English grammar is to speak and use the language as much as possible, even if you’re making mistakes. In fact, mistakes are a prerequisite for the process of improving your grammar skills. If you have no one to speak to - record yourself on the phone, write short stories or simply journal.
Classical courses tell you to learn grammar rules one after the other, but a much more robust and fun strategy is to figure out what grammar rules you need to know to say what you want to say. For example, if you have topics that excite you, talk or write about them.
So every day, try to speak in English (even by yourself) and try to describe various things, retell things from the past, plan future tasks, etc., and see where you get stuck. Or mark the parts where you’re unsure if you expressed it correctly.
Anytime you get stuck, go to the resources below and find a way to express yourself. That way, you reinforce the rule in your memory and get one step closer to its automation.

Parting words: prioritize practice over learning
Now you have everything you need to master English grammar. Whatever resource you use, prioritize using what you learn in writing and speaking over simply reading about it. Practicing the grammar rules is the only surefire way of making them automatic. Don’t just focus on grammar. Expose yourself to grammar. Read blog posts and news, watch exciting videos and shows, and talk to other people if you have the opportunity. As you keep practicing, you’ll start having those moments when the words just come out without you even thinking! You’ll get that beautiful feeling if you put in the work. Good luck!
