    I think grammar has a place in teaching communicative language if we want them to understand the language they are using. Look at how the new generation is forgetting how to conjugate verbs and spell because of texting. That is NOT language!Eric
    When communicating it is about being understood. Grammar is important for proper communication and correctness but I think too much focus is put on it because it requires less critical/creative thinking and more just memorizing rulesMichael
