Resource Book

500 ideas and activities for teaching grammar

ETpedia Grammar is a one-stop resource for teaching English language grammar. It’s full of practical ideas, inspiration, tips, and classroom activities.



ETpedia Grammar equips teachers with a wide range of classroom activities that lend themselves to engaging practice with the most common grammar points taught in the English language classroom.

Organised into 50 units each containing 10 ideas, it is easy to dip in and out of. It will save you planning time, provide inspiration, help you motivate students, and anticipate problems students might have with different aspects of grammar. Within the resource, grammar points are ordered in themed sets. These are presented in a sequence loosely based on the order you might expect to teach them on a course.

Every unit in ETpedia Grammar provides you with 10 different ideas and activities. Usually the first couple of ideas in a unit offer ideas for presenting the key points of the grammar. The main part of the unit then provides you with ideas for activities to practise the grammar in a fun, meaningful way.

Each unit also contains:

  • an activity based on a photocopiable handout (which you will find in the Appendix),
  • a motivating task for students to do after the lesson on their own,
  • tips on the difficulties students often have with the grammar point in question.

If you are new to teaching, ETpedia Grammar will be invaluable for supporting you on your way. If you’ve been teaching for a while, this resource might remind you of techniques and activities you haven’t used recently. It will also offer you fresh new ideas to increase your repertoire.

ETpedia Grammar is the eighth title in the popular ETpedia series.


ETpedia Grammar is suitable for English language teachers of all experience levels.

It is ideal for teachers who are just starting out and want to feel more confident teaching grammar.

For experienced teachers and teacher trainers it brings inspiration in the form of tips, techniques, and practical ideas.
