Yuri’s English Grammar
The English cards consist of two parts: Basic to intermediate and intermediate to advanced.
The first part of the English series contains 50 charts with grammatical categories such as pronouns, possessives, prepositions, etc., and basic structures like I live, I don’t live, do you live?
The tables display all the foundation grammar you need to know when studying English as a second language, from basic up to an intermediate level.
The second card of the English series contains over 20 grammar charts with formulas and examples so you can easily see how to form more complex structures.
This card is excellent for anyone studying at a higher level and who wants to have easy access to the rules.
Some of the grammar included in the basic to intermediate card:
- Definite and indefinite articles
- Personal pronouns
- Frequency adverbs
- The verb to be in the present and past simple
- Present continuous
- Present perfect
- Future ( will and going to )
- Reflexive and object pronouns
- Quantifiers and determiners

- Question tags (aren’t I? Aren’t you? )

The set of colours help you easily identify the changes that occur when the sentences are in the affirmative, negative and interrogative form. It is essential to learn these changes at a basic level until students get familiar with the English structure.
Light colours show the personal pronouns ( I, you, he, she …) and dark colours emphasize the verb to be or the auxiliaries, am, is, was, do, didn’t, etc.
The colours yellow, purple and green show the singular form of the pronouns, adjectives, verbs and auxiliaries.
The coral colour displays the plural form, we, you, they.
This distinction makes it easier for you to find the word you need and gives you a clear English language map.
The tables are independent from each other, so you can focus on the chart related to the topic you are studying in class, eg. comparatives, modal verbs, defining clauses, etc.
The cards are a quick and handy reference guide to keep by your side when in class or for independent studying. They are great for studying, for reference and for practice.
They are convenient because they don’t contain all the explanations you have already been given by your teacher, or that are included in your book. They contain the elements or formulas you need to put into practice to create your own sentences.
Yuri’s Study Cards contain all the grammar you need when studying English as a second language. If you have your textbook, your workbook, your dictionary and your grammar card, you will be all set for your English lessons!
