"My 11-year-old son has struggled for years with grammar.  Due to Standardized Testing, we were forced into home schooling last year.  He received a commanded performance in math, reading, and comprehension on the Texas State TEKS.  However, he did not pass the mechanics of grammar and sentence diagramming part of the test.  I refused to let him be held back because of this one deficiency.  I am so excited with your Daily Grammar; my son is finally grasping the mechanics of grammar for the first time.  My only regret is that I did not find you sooner.  We are using Daily Grammar as one of our core subjects.  I would like to say thanks to standardized testing, without it I would never have found such a great website.  Thank you Mr. Johansen for sharing your knowledge with others."

"I have to tell you that I have been using this site in home schooling my son for years. The lessons are described well and are easy to understand for the instructor which makes is so much easier to explain rules to the student. Thank you so much for this site."--Lore, January 16, 2006

"Thank you so much for providing this valuable resource on the internet.  Your exercises and explanations are clear and cogent and make my grammar lesson preparation a breeze.  Your expertise and hard work are benefiting many teachers and students alike.  Thank you again."-- Sarah Galiley, April 12, 2005

I have been searching so many websites to find help with English grammar for home schooling and what a blessing it was when I came across yours. The lesson plans are easy to understand and the explanations and answers are wonderful. As I looked through the lesson plans, I saw things that I am certain I was never taught. I am going to enjoy learning alongside my daughter. I will make certain that I pass this website on to all of the other home schooling parents I meet, as well as the ones who have children in public school. As a substitute teacher, I have seen firsthand what is being taught in the public school system. The advanced English classes do not have anything like this so I will carry the information for this site with me and give it to any student who needs a helping hand. Keep up the good work."--J.B. Moore, February 17, 2005

"I just wanted to let you know that this site is perfect for our county's curriculum.  Over the Summer, several other Language Arts Teachers and I were invited to write a Curriculum Map for our Language Arts program.  Into that map, we integrated daily grammar drill.  Although we had some Daily Oral Grammar exercises provided with the texts we adopted, I didn't find them sufficient for my purposes.  The Daily Grammar site fits the bill.  I put the Daily Lessons onto overhead transparencies and work through them with my students.  On Fridays, we do the quiz on paper.  I am pleased with the changes I am finding in their grammar and punctuation."--Christy Cardwell, November 17, 2004

"I teach two sections of grade 9-12 English in an alternative setting.  Daily Grammar has been a life saver for me in the classroom.  I use Daily Grammar everyday for my bell work.  The lessons are short, clear, understandable, and to the point.  My students actually look forward to doing their bell work.  They work at tables in groups and debate the answers with one another.  When there is a dispute, they call me over to their table.  They then exchange papers, and we correct them as a class.  The groups compete against each other in a good-natured manner, and unless the need arises for me to teach a mini-lesson relating to a question, the whole process takes less than 15 minutes.  I asked for feedback this week about whether to continue the Daily Grammar bell work, and both classes answered emphatically in the affirmative.  Thank you for making this service available for me to use. Not only do I get to take attendance, I get to watch my students learning and interacting positively with one another."--Heidi R. Bacon, March 13, 2004

"Love your Daily Grammar.  I teach German and English at corporations as well as privately, and I use little tips and tricks from your Daily Grammar. For example, in English, we can move adverbs around a bit and not affect the meaning of the sentence. German, however, is stricter about where adverbs get placed, and American executives usually have a hard time with all of this. By using some of your examples (and the German sentence set-up of 1) Time, 2) Manner, 3) Place), my students "get it" a lot faster. Thanks for a great service."--Maggie McCloskey, April 18, 2002

"Daily Grammar does something which in the subject of grammar is a significant achievement. It presents grammar in a series of easy lessons which accumulated add up to an advanced, sophisticated grasp of the subject.  Most systems are either more complex or if simplified stay simple. DAILY GRAMMAR does both by giving short lessons where the emphasis is on drilling just one point. Yet each set of drills when extended over 400 plus lessons rewards the student with an in-depth understanding of English grammar if he or she stays with it. Congratulations to Mr. Johanson."--David Ziff, April 11, 2002

"I just want to say I love your service. I write for a living and grammar has never been a strong point for me. I need to brush up on my poor grammar. I tried buying books but your online lessons are the best. Keep up the great work. Thank you!"--Sarah Reimer, June 27, 2001

"I'm home schooling my two daughters and I don't know what I would do without you! Thank you so much for the wonderful lessons. I print them out and answer the questions with my girls everyday. I feel it build their confidence and inspired them toward creative writing and reading, and I've noticed how much more conscientious they are of their speech. Grammar has never been my strong suit, and now I'm finally learning as well."--Suzanne Underwood, May 7, 2001

"Thank you Mr. Johanson for these wonderful grammar lessons, which are explained in a lucid fashion. I joined the mailing list just a few days ago
and I'm already hooked. On behalf of all the grammar aficionados and also those who are grammatically challenged (like me), please accept my deepest gratitude. These lessons are godsend!"--John Thomas, December 6, 2000

"I wanted to take a moment to say how great your daily grammar site is.  I teach English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) at Florida Community College in Jacksonville, FL. All of my students are immigrants or international students. In order to begin their chosen major they must complete three levels of English. I teach Structure which is pure grammar.  I was looking for additional material for the students to practice and reinforce the lessons. These lessons and practice items will help my students immensely."--Catherine Rifkin, December 22, 1999

"I would like to thank you for the great site you are providing. It is clear, concise and enjoyable without ever being condescending. This is so much more interesting than what I remember from my school days. I'm still trying to figure out if I forgot so much or if I missed some vital lessons in my English classes. There is so much that you cover that we take for granted in our every day conversation. For example, I think most people would have difficulty explaining prepositions in any kind of comprehensible fashion. After going through your lessons, it is understandable and I could give a reasonable explanation to someone learning the language. Thanks again. I'll be back often."--Sandy Sander, December 5, 1999

"I teach a developmental writing and reading course at a technical college, and even though you perhaps tailor your material to the junior high and high school student level, it seems as though these lessons would be a perfect way for my students to combine a review of grammar with an introduction to computer technology.  Thank you."--Heidi H., December 2, 1999

"Many thanks from far away Western Australia for the first grammar lesson! I look forward with interest to future submissions!"--Kevin Lehane (A 65 year old student interested in writing), September 10, 1999

"I am a home schooling parent of three children.  We love Daily Grammar because it is clear, concise and relieves us from a lot of boring repetition that other textbooks and language arts workbooks include.  Thanks so much for this material!"--Kate Montanio, August 28, 1999

"My husband came in the room while I was reading my Daily Grammar.  He asked me why I was reading it because I had it in school.  I told him that I was leaning some things that I had not been taught or had forgotten.  He just smirked.  I asked him one question.  I asked him to name the 23 helping verbs.  He said, "You got me."  He has been a fan ever since.  I print the lessons and I'm using them to teach my grandchildren, ages 7 and up.  They will know how to diagram a sentence.  Thank you."--Sharlise Coston, August 23, 1999

"I am 58 years old and have been a business executive for 35 of them.  I have really enjoyed the lessons.  Thanks."--Mark Crider, August 17, 1999

"I am very glad to have found you! I like your site so much. I am sending your web site address to friends and relatives. Thanks for a great page!"--Carolyn, August 9, 1999

"Thanks.  I am a graduate student and I still find your topics useful. The basics usually get lost in the shuffle."-- Joe Major, August 4, 1999

"Your site is wonderful and must be extremely helpful for people around the world. I have signed up and will teach all the tips to my two young grandchildren."--Marie Stuttard, August 2, 1999

"I teach 'bonehead' English at a community college. Your daily grammar lessons are invaluable. Do you mind or can I get approval to use the lessons in class?  They're better than most textbooks. Thanks."--Wels Musgrave, July 31, 1999 (Teachers have our permission to duplicate and use the lessons in their classrooms so long as the copyright information is preserved.)

"Thanks so much for these lessons. I had much trouble in school, and now in my fifties it is so nice to find out I can do it."--Gary Carlson, July 29, 1999

"I am enjoying the 'Grammar' lessons very much!  Thanks for helping make this successful. Best wishes."--Samantha Luz, July 21, 1999
