Grammar Expert: English Grammar Beginner

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 3.01.57 PMThis app is ideal for English Language Learners. I wouldn’t recommend it, however, for native English speakers interested in improving or initially learning basic grammar skills.

Each topicĀ – or chapter – consists of a brief lesson, followed by four mini quizzes and a chapter quiz. There’s also a final quiz that covers all of the chapters. The app recommends that the user score a 75% or higher on each mini quiz before proceeding to the chapter quiz. But it is possible to move on without obtaining a certain score. It is also possible to complete the chapters out of order. Each quiz consists of a series of sentences with a word missing; the user has to choose the correct word from three choices. On the mini quizzes, options are present to skip the question or to receive a hint. All quizzes have the option of accessing the study lesson.
