The Grammar Lab (Elementary/Intermediate)

What is the English Grammar Lab?

  • It is a collection of useful webs to practise grammar points with interactive games (traditional lab exercises which can be used to practise you English individually or together in a class with a projector).

  • The sites indexed on this page have been designed with a focus-on-form goal in mind, using different authoring tools.

  • They are useful for self-access, since they provide you with the correct answer.

Terms of cataloguing and use

  • All the webs included have free access to their exercises.
  • Our catalog starts with three comprehensive websites with a wide scope of gramatical practice. We will include gradually those webs we consider useful for learners.
  • As we try to avoid commercial sites, you may not find some of your favorite, we make some exceptions when a site is really worth a visit.
  • There won’t be links to the individual exercises, only a list to their content. Instead, we hope you access the web itself, not to infringe copyright or be evasive about real authoring.
  • I hope you like this assortment of nice language practice recipes.
