Every year, many college students take part in the college English test, which is important for them, because they need the certification to get a better job. However, many foreigners find that the exam is not much help in speaking, so people start to argue that grammar is not necessary to learn. I don’t think so.
As a matter of fact, grammar helps students to be better in speaking. As the saying that Rome is not built in one day, which means students need to master more words and grammar, so that they can speak in the right way. It is true that a lot of Chinese students focus on grammar and they can’t speak English well. But speaking needs courage and they are afraid of making mistakes. Look at the foreigners, the way they learn Chinese is to master grammar. At the same time, they like to talk to the local people.
A person can speak a language well without focus on grammar. But if he really want to make the language useful, then both grammar and the ability to speak are of importance.
