Abstract—Studies worldwide have explored how Grammarly
as Electronic Tool (e-Tool) assists English as a Second
Language (ESL) students in enhancing their writing. The
present study aims to improve Madrasa ESL learners’ writing
by minimizing inflectional morphemes related errors at Darul
Uloom Nadwatul Ulama in Lucknow, Northern part of India.
The study participants included sixty-eight Madrasa students
who were enrolled in Alimiyat (equivalent to 12th) grade and
were formed into two separate groups: an experimental group
was treated with Grammarly, while the control group got
instruction using the communicative language teaching
approach. The data was collected from all participants before
and after the treatment. A quantitative approach was used to
the analysis of the data. A repeated-measures two-way ANOVA
test revealed that Grammarly enhanced ESL learners’ writing
for inflectional morphemes following treatment in the
experimental group relative to the control group. These findings
demonstrate how ‘Grammarly’ as and e-Tool may support ESL
writers, especially novel writers who find it challenging to write
well in English.
