Careful analysis proved that teenagers do download a lot of educational apps, and this is essentially how Grammar Express was born. The content is authored by Ashok Rajeshirke, who has been teaching English for last 30 years. The app comprises very innovative way of learning rules with descriptions and a lot of examples and then practicing with hundreds of test questions. I am sure this will prove to be a great tool for mastering English grammatical tenses. Many more apps are to follow which will cover other topics in English grammar."
