How do I improve my English grammar?

    This may sound a bit weird cos I was born & was raised in Liverpool but left England at the age of 10, so I obviously knew English.

    I've noticed when I'd speak my English gets sort of broken, my grammar has gotten worse... Like I don't make sense most of the time??

    I'm 19 now, and I've returned back to England at the beginning of this year and one of my cousins said in joking way that my grammar has gotten worse which is true

    So how do i improve my grammar, will reading books help cos I don't actually read books?

    Typing isn't a problem cos I could keep changing what I wrote until I'm happy with it if you get what I mean.

    Reading books, watching tv programmes where the people speak with correct grammar, watching the news, spending time with others who speak with good grammar, read the newspaper. Erm you could also check it this book called the elements of style, it tackles a few grammar issues, it's a small book you could probably read the whole thing in an hour.

    Like what's been previously said, there are many books, in the library which could help. Also doing activities online, there's probably apps for it too, but don't feel ashamed, it's good that you're wanting to improve it, instead of leaving it. But yeah, definitely look around for resources online and in libraries.
