Grammar teaching : Study of grammar role in early language teaching (English)
Abstract [en]

This essay aims to generate understanding for todays grammar teaching in the early grades.

Through base in previous research, I intend in this work to seek understanding of what affects the grammar development and its impact on education. I investigate in this essay teacher's approach to grammar and how it affects the incidence of grammar teaching.

Work empiricism consists of qualitative research interviews and a survey with the intention to present a broad picture of grammatical meaning. Regarding to the informants that are involved in the investigation, I have deliberately chosen teachers from different generations to find reflections of their own education and how it

influenced their view of grammar. My study shows that teachers acquire greater part of teaching about language

functional side compared to the form of the language. The teachers who participated in the survey indicated that the language functional side priority by reason that the more responds to students' learning needs and promotes a desire to learn through meaningful for the student. Teachers' views on grammar and its impact on education was shown by the study to be quite individual and based on the teacher's own experiences. Therefore, could not this study present a clear picture of the teacher's definition of grammar.
