I'm usually pretty good in languages, but it seems like there's a lot of grammar rules in my English and Spanish classes. The thing I'm wondering is, why didn't the teachers teach us the grammar and the basics first? We can all count to a hundred, say simple things, but in our third year, people (including me), have trouble making sentences. And in English, there's so many rules that I have never even heard of before.
Recently, I learned that "It is her" is grammatically incorrect and "It is she" is correct. But I know my English teacher said "It is her.."
Is it just me, or should teaching of languages start with basic grammar, then proceed to details. It seems like it's the other way around at times..
