The Linguapress Free online English grammar provides an overview of the main points of English grammar, clearly explained, with plenty of  examples. These pages are designed for students in the higher grades of secondary education or high school, and in universities and other forms of higher education. Though originally an EFL / ESOL resource aimed at non-native speakers of English, this is also an invaluable resource for English-speaking students wishing to comprehend the grammar and syntax of their own language.
     Compared to many other languages, English is a language whose grammar is relatively easy – which is certainly one of the reasons why it has been able to become established as a world language. English is a language in which it is fairly easy to communicate, even without understanding much of its grammar; much of the basic grammar of English is intuitive, making it easy to express basic ideas without ever having consciously learned any rules.
     But using a language properly is more than just knowing how to communicate: it is knowing how to communicate with precision, without ambiguity, and in a form that others can understand. Most native English speakers do this fairly easily, without having ever learned the rules. But rules of grammar exist, and for those learning English as a foreign language and for English-speakers wishing to understand the workings of their own language, some understanding of the essential rules of English grammar is necessary.  The Linguapress Free online English grammar seeks to explain these rules and principles as clearly and as coherently as possible.
