Some Help with English


Today, my daughter asked me to help her with her English subject homework. I usually helped my kids doing their homework but that was when they were younger. After they reached high school, they just dejected the idea of having the parent beside them while they are doing their school work. So today, I was quite surprised what it was about. My daughter showed me her homework and it was easy when I first look at it.

So, with the thought that I can help her in no time, we immediately sat and discussed her homework. Well, I never thought that it was quite hard that what I expected. It was some error identification and grammar explanation at the same time. During my time, I really didn't pay attention with the technical words used in Grammar.

Now, I am thinking of hitting the books again. I was left out and I was really not a big help to my daughter's. I feel disappointed. I feel ashamed of myself not knowing those which I should. Though I was able to give her the correct answer to error identification in the text, I was not able to explain to my daughter why they were wrong. Well, they say that you should be grammarian before you would be know those, but I think otherwise.

So, early morning, I immediately searched for grammar books in the net to start re-educating myself. Now I know, it is not only important to know the answer, also know why it is the answer. After an hour of searching, I found some download links of some good books.

Here are the links for those who are interested:

I will spend some of my time reviewing these so I would not have myself embarrassed again in front of my daughter. I think it is the pride of not knowing the why that bothered me most. And as the saying goes, never too late for something!
