Studying Grammar with EFA cards

Intro

You can study grammar with EFA cards. It’s easy.

Tutorial

3 parts of grammar

There are three different parts of grammar:

  1. The words
  2. The form of the words (run, ran, catch caught)
  3. The order of the words

You can study grammar by taking away or changing one of these parts.

Example

I was doing the laundry when the earthquake started.

Here are a few ways you can study the grammar of this sentence.

  1. I ___ doing the laundry when the earthquake started. (to be)
  2. I was doing the laundry when the earthquake ___. (to start)
  3. What’s missing?
    I was doing the laundry when earthquake started.

In example 1, I have to guess the form of the verb “to be.”

In example 2, I have to guess the form of the verb “to start.”

In example 3, I have to guess which word is missing (the) and where it goes
