Краткое описание документа:

Грамматика – это такой аспект языка, мнения о котором у изучающих язык расходятся. Некоторым очень интересно изучать грамматические правила, и выполнять массу грамматических упражнений. Другие грамматику терпеть не могут, и считают, что это самое скучное и нудное в процессе изучения нового языка. Однако, какого бы мнения вы не придерживались, нельзя не учить грамматику – она в каждом предложении, которое вы читаете или пишите, говорите или слышите. Грамматика – это всего лишь набор правил, которым следуют люди, когда говорят на каком-либо языке. Эти правила нужны по тем же причинам, по которым нужны, например, правила в спортивной игре. Если правил в игре нет, или никто им не следует, то в эту игру невозможно будет играть. То же самое относится к языку – без правил люди не смогли бы общаться друг с другом. Данная разработка предлагается в помощь учителям, работающим в старших и средних классах общеобразовательных школ. Моя разработка состоит из упражнений, большинство которых направлены на развитие лексико-грамматических умений и навыков. А также  упражнения на узнавание грамматических явлений, которые должны быть усвоены рецептивно.

     Надеюсь учителям английского языка данная разработка будет интересной.
