    Get him reading - anything at all.
     
  2. Don't you talk to him?

     
  3. Language isn't like that. There's no book or worksheet you can buy that will be a quick fix to generaly weak skills in writing formal English.
    He needs to read a lot - consider getting rid of telly and games consoles, but let him play on social networking sites, and of course have plenty of books. He also needs to write a lot. Start by making him write thank-you letters for all his Christmas presents.


     
  4. Doesn't use nouns? Interesting. Can you paste some of his work here for us to see? Perhaps we could offer some advice based on a sample of his work. Cheers.
     
  5. I think the above is good advice. Also, is it possible to read with him? would he enjoy that? it can help in a not always exactly quantifiable way and you can indirectly re-affirm the right things to do.
