It is always uneasy to start a new thing in your life. Grammar too has it's own good start.
Therefore, for the introduction, let us see through the meaning of nouns and have a quick reviews on them.


# A noun is the name of a person, place, or thing.
# Nouns are divided into five different kinds : --
Proper Nouns 
Common Nouns
Collective nouns
Material Nouns
Abstract Nouns
# A Proper Noun is the name of a particular person, place, or thing.
eg :  John ( person ) ;  Palm Beach County ( place ) ; The Chinese ( people );
                                                   Books ( thing )
# A Common Noun is a name that can be given to any person or thing of the same kind.
eg : Man, boy, table, dog
# A Collective Noun is singular in form though denoting more than one.
eg : Herd, army, flock.
# A Material Noun is the name of a substance
eg : Milk, iron, wood.
# An  Abstract Noun is the name of a quality.
eg : Love, truth, color.

What is GRAMMAR, why learn GRAMMAR?

#Grammar is the system of a language. People sometimes describe grammar as the "rules" of a language; but in fact no language has rules*. If we use the word "rules", we suggest that somebody created the rules first and then spoke the language, like a new game.

#Do we need to study grammar to learn a language? The short answer is "no". It's important to think of grammar as something that can help you, like a friend. When you understand the grammar (or system) of a language, you can understand many things yourself, without having to ask a teacher or look in a book.
