What is grammar?

Grammar is the structure of language. It is how we express pauses and tone, how we separate ideas and how we ensure our writing is clear and precise. 

Why do I need good grammar skills?

While at university, a good level of grammar knowledge will aid you in your assignments and essays. Using grammar correctly will mean that you are able to effectively convey your argument in an essay as the content will be easy to read and follow as you will not be breaking conventional rules of the language.
