English Language Center
As a social creature people will continuously interact with the other in various social lives so, people will be easier to express their idea about something or exchange information if they know the language which other can speak. In addition to that, in education, a student can access any information in the books, internet, and newspaper with the help of English and it takes a large part in the growth of technology and international business. That is the reason why English has become the most common second language in the world and English is well known as an international standard language so, the importance of English can not be denied and ignored.
This website is for students who want help with English grammar, but teachers may also find it useful as additional course material in cases where further work or grammar is necessary.

When do we use a, an, the?
