This empirical study of the types of grammar was conducted at the ELT Department of Çukurova University with 50 participants studying at preparatory classes. The dependent variable was the number of grammatical or correct items over the forms gained out of pre-test, post-test and delayed -post test. The Solomon four-group was adopted to provide the best control of the threats to internal validity within our research. T test and chi square analysis were used to analyze any significant difference between the treatment and the control groups. The results supported the fact that grammar teaching does really make a significant difference in L2 learning. © 2009.
