I’ve just come across this website which helps you to practice almost every error I come across in students’ writing. It’s particularly useful because it will give you immediate feedback and an explanation if you get something wrong.

Pay particular attention to fused sentences and sentence fragments. These mistakes will cost you dearly so sort it out!Also the classic error with apostrophes is to just leave them out because you’re not sure whether or not to use them, so it’s probably a good idea to sort that out too while you’re at it!

Here’s another site that gets you to play a fun game so you can identify the parts of a sentence:

  1. […] LeavingCertEnglish has a great way for students to learn about the proper grammar.  Chomp Chomp is a website that allows you to practice writing sentences and then having feedback provided to you right away about how on point your grammar was.  I think this is a great idea for students to understand what they are doing wrong but I also believe teachers need to make sure that students are not overusing it and using it to write a sentence for them.  Overall, I like the idea of Chomp Chomp!

    Hi, there! Thanks for recommending these websites. Chomp Chomp looks very cool. I’ve been looking for nice grammar websites. And Chomp chomp could make grammar more interactive.
