RULE 5: Use Point Of View Mini-Stories I call these stories “Point Of View Mini-Stories”.
They are the most powerful way to learn and use English grammar automatically. Use Point of View Stories for Automatic Grammar You must learn grammar by listening to real English. The best way is to listen to the same story… told at different times (points of view): Past, Perfect, Present, Future. How do you do this? Easy! Find a story or article in the present tense. Then ask your native speaker tutor to write it again in the Past, with Perfect tenses, and in the Future. Finally, ask him to read and record these stories for you. Then you can listen to a story with many different kinds of grammar. You don’t need to know the grammar rules. Just listen to the Point of View stories and you will improve grammar automatically!
