This is a somewhat belated reaction to Catherine Walter's article which appeared in the Learning English section of Guardian last autumn. Click here to read it.
Dr Catherine Walter’s article Time to
stop avoiding grammar rules defends explicit
grammar teaching in EFL. Proudly subtitled The evidence is now in: the
explicit teaching of grammar rules leads to better learning, the article
makes numerous references to a "wide range of studies" that have
shown evidence of effectiveness of explicit grammar teaching.
