Grammar is sometimes known to be not so interesting . . .
I must disagree, though, because in most cases I find grammar absolutely fascinating.
But if you, or your students, are not in the same opinion as me, there are some things you can do to increase interest and involvement (not to mention results!):
Make sure the student understands all the words and terms in the subject you are trying to teach.
Incorrect example: teaching the passive voice without explaining what “voice” actually means in this context.
Correct example: explaining what a “voice” means first. Also, make sure the student fully understands the terms SUBJECT and OBJECT, since they will encounter them shortly
And by the way, a voice in this context means:
The form of a verb that shows whether the subject of a sentence performs the action or is affected by it.
If it performs the action – we call it the active voice.
If it is affected by the action – we call it the passive voice.
