Friday Fun: Super Grammar

As you might tell from some of my earlier posts — and my running campaign to get “First Person Shooter” games renamed to the more accurate “Second Person Shooter” — I’m sort of a grammar geek. I’m afraid I’ll find no cure, since I’m married to an English teacher.

Which is why I find Super Grammar so much fun. This is a relatively new grammar site that assigns a colorful superhero to the most important grammar terms. The combination of illustration and super power gives students a powerful mnemonic for remembering what each part of speech does. The silly, colorful presentation keeps learners engaged in what can be a dry subject.

My wife uses it to help her ESL (English as a Second Langage) students catch up with their peers. I read their posts simply because it’s really well done.

Seriously, check it out.

And happy new year.
