    Best answer: There is a difference between BICS (Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills) and CALP (Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency) What I think you're saying is that you have good BICS, and people are assuming from that that you have the academic language needed for school work.
    Now- learning to name the parts of speech will NOT help you comprehend what you're reading. Reading is a skill that is developed through practice. You need to do a lot of reading of gradually more difficult material. Academic texts contain a lot of sentence with noun clauses, adjective clauses and adverb clauses. The sentence contain a lot of complex references and comparisons. Learning ABOUT grammar does not help you to comprehend those texts. Only practice can do that. You can look for advance ESL classes, or you can just do a lot of reading on your own.
