Teach or learn grammar in a fun and engaging way!

Would like to teach or learn grammar
in a fun and engaging way? 

Would you like to learn grammar so that you can stop feeling self-conscious about your communication skills? Have you found that when you attempt to learn by yourself, you feel more confused than you were before?

What if you could press play, and someone taught you in a fun and engaging way?

What if you could learn from a teacher who guided you through the exact lessons you needed in exactly the right order...and you could even ask that teacher questions any time you wanted?

Teachers, would you like to teach grammarbut you don't know grammar yourself? Or perhaps you know grammar, but you don't have the time or energy to research and plan lessons. 

What if you could press play, and someone else did the teaching for you?

What if you didn't have to do any lesson prep and your students still got a great grammar education?

Introducing Our Get Smart Grammar Program

Get Smart Grammar Program

I have struggled with understanding grammar my whole life, and I felt like I was stupid because I could not memorize the rules. 

I was seriously leaning towards walking away from my dream job as a college professor because of my embarrassment and fear of getting caught as being a fraud! Thank God for you! I have confidence, and I actually love grammar now. 

- C., College Professor

I'm a year and a half into using your grammar curriculum, and I am so impressed with it. I've found success with both honors and non-honors students alike. Thank you for creating such a user-friendly and perfectly-paced curriculum.

- Kate, Teacher

What This Program Will Give You

    Self-confidence. You'll start to experience the joy of understanding language just a few lessons into the program. By the time you're finished, you'll have an understanding of grammar that you can feel proud of.

    Focus. Each of the 37 lessons contains a short, engaging video (5-15 minutes each) that teaches you exactly what you need to learn without overwhelming you. Each lesson also contains exercises that give you space to practice and apply what you learn in the videos.

    Clarity. You'll learn how to diagram every concept that we cover. Sentence diagrams help make grammatical connections clear and visual. BONUS! After you finish this program, you'll have a party trick you can perform at all of your parties and talent shows. Just show everyone how you can diagram sentences, and you're sure to be the most interesting person in the room. :)

    Time. When you use the Get Smart Grammar Program, you don't need to do any outside research or preparation. Put on your blinders and go through the lessons in this program. That's all you need to do!


    Recall & Review. The visual nature of the sentence diagrams paired with the puzzle-like aspect of creating them will help you retain what you learn. Since all of the concepts build on each other, you're also continually reviewing easier concepts as you learn more difficult concepts. 

    Flexibility. The Get Smart Grammar Program is broken into 37 lessons (There are roughly 37 weeks in a school year). Each lesson contains a 5-15 minute video and at least five sentence diagramming exercises. You can do one lesson a week (37 weeks), or you can do one lesson a day (37 days). It's up to you. Just follow the lessons in order, and you can't go wrong.

    Confidence. Feel good knowing that you're teaching your students (or yourself) the right concepts in the right order. This program covers the parts of speech, sentence types, verb types, independent and dependent clauses, phrases, and verbals. See a detailed overview here.

My kids, who were not looking forward to this at all, went nuts after watching the first video. They loved your energy, and consequently they didn't miss a single lesson even though I never reminded them to do anything.

How does it work?

  • You'll receive instant digital access. Your login information will be emailed to you within minutes of your purchase, so you can start learning right away. The videos can be streamed or downloaded, and the written lessons and exercises may also be downloaded. You'll receive blank student lessons to write on as well as instructor answer keys to check work.

  • You'll have the option of ordering softcover books. You'll be creating your sentence diagrams with a pencil and paper. The softcover books allow you to complete your sentence diagrams and other work in a bound book. This means you won't have to deal with printing out all of the lessons, and you will have an easy way to reference your work in the future if you ever need to revisit the material. The student workbooks ($15) are 285 pages, and the instructor book ($18) is 335 pages.
  • You'll have our support. Feel free to send us any questions that may come up as you move through the program. We're here to help.

  • It's guaranteed. Thousands of people with differing backgrounds have had success with the Get Smart Grammar Program. We're so sure that it will help you that we offer an unconditional, no-questions-asked, 30-day, money-back guarantee.

Thank you for making this program! My grammar-hating son, age 13, is finally mastering grammar after years of using other homeschool programs that did nothing to make him truly understand grammar!! Get Smart is exceptional and makes students successful in this realm! Thank you again!

Peek Inside

This short video shows some clips from the program. (Note that the actual videos don't have music with them.)

I hated grammar as a kid, and I wish I had had a teacher like you! I'm hoping my kids will have a better experience than I did, and with your program, I am confident that they will.

- Valerie, Homeschool Mom

I have just completed your Get Smart Grammar Program and felt that I needed to say a sincere thank you. The knowledge and enjoyment that I have gained during the course has been immense, and I will review it on a regular basis.

A real bonus for me is that the quality of your teaching is immaculate. The logical sequence of the content, definitions, diagrams, constant reviews and questions all help to aid retention. 

- Nick, Adult Learner

Are you a teacher, parent, or tutor?

I've been a teacher, and I know that prepping lessons isn't fun. (That's especially true when you're prepping for topics that you don't understand or like!)

These lessons are laid out for you in a really accessible way. You won't have to worry about preparing grammar lessons, and you'll know that you're teaching your students as they should be taught.

You won't have to worry about knowing everything either. This program will teach YOU grammar too. In fact, you don't have to know any grammar before you use this program, and you can start teaching your students right away.

All you have to do is read through the instructor lesson and exercises before your class. (It will only take a few minutes.) Then, you'll go over the student lessons with your students, and you'll all be good to go!

My eighth-graders are grasping grammar better than I've ever seen. I intend to continue using this every year!

- Ann, Classroom Teacher

  • Because sentence diagramming is actually fun, both you and your students will be motivated about your grammar lessons. 

  • You'll be a more confident teacher and person as you yourself learn grammar and sentence diagramming.

I promise not to bog you down with pages of boring and unnecessary information. I've included exactly what you need and not a lot of fluff.

Are you an adult who never learned grammar?

Use this program to teach yourself grammar.

It will be especially fun for you because you get to be both the teacher and the student. Yay!

You don't need to know any grammar before you get started. You'll just go through the student lessons and complete the exercises, and then you'll check your work with the instructor lessons.

By the time you're done with the program, you will actually understand language, and you'll feel so much better about your writing.

  • How long will I have access to the program? Teachers receive annual access that will need to be renewed each year in order to continue using the program. Home-based purchases receive lifetime access.
  • How long does it take to go through the Get Smart Grammar Program? There are 37 lessons, and there are roughly 37 weeks in a school year, so it's pretty easy to go through one lesson a week. People going at that pace can expect to spend anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes a week on the course. This amount of time can vary depending on your current level of knowledge and the complexity of the lesson that you're on. However, you can move at any pace you'd like. Some people go through the whole course in just a few weeks.

My kids were struggling to learn grammar until we got Get Smart. Elizabeth does an awesome job of starting small and building into it. As a mom of more than four kids, I love the ease of hitting play and us all watching Elizabeth teach these concepts.

  • Are the videos available on DVD? I don't have a very good Internet connection, and I'm concerned that I won't be able to use the videos. The videos are not available as DVDs, but they are all downloadable with your access. That means you can download them in non-peak times and play them back whenever you'd like without any playback issues. Also, know that you don't need to watch the videos. Each video accompanies a written lesson. You can easily go through the program using just the written lessons if you'd like.
  • What's the difference between the school-based and home-based programs? The programs contain the exact same content, but the school-based version also includes a username and password for students. This allows them to log in and view only the student material. The difference in price also accounts for the way we license the program to teachers. 
  • Can students complete and save their work online? Nope. We know that things are digital and high-tech these days, but this is one area where you and your students get to experience the benefits of working on actual paper. Gasp!
  • How does the content in the softcover books compare to what's included in the online access? The online access gives you access to everything digitally. That means you get online access to all of the downloadable videos, teacher lessons, student lesson, and quizzes. You can print all of the lessons and quizzes out if you'd like. You can also complete the exercises on loose-leaf paper if you don't want to print everything out. The softcover instructor book (335 pages) and softcover student book (285 pages) are simply printed and bound versions of the printable lessons. Since students will be completing the exercises in the lessons on paper, some people prefer to order the softcover books rather than to print everything out and try to keep it all organized.

After talking to several other teachers, I do believe my students are now the grammar gods at our school. These freshmen couldn't tell me the difference between a noun and a verb when the semester started, and now they are feeling so accomplished! Thank you for that!

- Meredith, Classroom Teacher

I am totally hooked. I'm up to lesson 10 on prepositional phrases, and I'm progressing in leaps and bounds. Honestly the program (Get Smart) has been worth every penny. Talk about confidence boosting for my TEFL course! Thank you. It is exactly what I needed!

My students are fighting over who gets to diagram the sentence on the board when they walk into the classroom. It is a joy to see. 

- Tracy, Classroom Teacher

Thank you for making a stress-free way to learn grammar.

Thank you for providing such helpful resources for grammar education. I have just completed the Get Smart Grammar Program for myself and plan to teach it to my children this summer. :)

Hello! I'm Elizabeth O'Brien, and I've been teaching grammar for over 17 years. I'm the driving force behind Grammar Revolution, and although I've been doing this for a long time, my passion for teaching grammar has not faded. My husband, David, and I have produced a feature-length documentary about grammar education, written and published over 100 articles on this website, and self-published books and courses that have helped thousands of people. For over 12 years, we've been emailing lessons every other week to our huge list of subscribers, and we run a private Facebook group answering questions and discussing grammar topics. 

I'm your Get Smart Grammar Program host, and I would love to show you why grammar is so cool. :)

Hello! I'm Elizabeth O'Brien, and my goal is to get you jazzed about grammar.
