Abstract: rammar is an essential part of learning any language. For this reason language teachers are always trying to find effective ways to present it to students. This experimental study compares the effectiveness of providing explicit grammar explanations to students using the Presentation, Practice, Production approach and applying Focus on Form using consciousness-raising tasks to develop accuracy in Intermediate EFL learners. An experimental and a control group of Intermediate students participated in this study, each group received a different type of instruction for a period of 8 weeks. An immediate and a delayed post-test was applied to both groups in order to compare their results and determine which type of instruction was more effective to develop accuracy in students. The results obtained revealed a significant difference between the groups and demonstrates that an inductive presentation of grammar, where students are first in contact with the target structures while they communicate and then are asked to analyze them by themselves, resulted more effective in developing accuracy than receiving explicit and direct grammar explanations.
