Though I remember clearly the infamous AWK's and RO's glaring at me from the margins of my returned essays and reports, I wouldn't go so far as to say that that meant I was learning "grammar" or even correct writing for that matter.

Also, as part of the textual metafunction, we have certain options about what we put first in the clause, i.e. where we start from.

Thus the words to be focused on by teachers, speech-language pathologists, special educators, and parents should be words that the student needs to learn in order to comprehend the language used in the classroom, on the playground, and at home. Grammar was not explicitly taught; proponents instead believed that accuracy would be acquired naturally over time. (See Gascoigne, 2002, for a full discussion of the explicit/implicit grammar debate.) Contemporary research on the merits of the implicit and explicit approaches described above has led to the consensus that an exclusive emphasis on either extreme impedes adult learners’ acquisition of English.
