As we all know, computers play an important role in today's society. With the development of science and technology, computer-assisted language learning has strategic significance in the field of foreign language learning research, which is a new learning strategy. Because it is difficult for language learners and teachers to learn grammar, computer-assisted language learning is essential to meet the requirements of social and academic achievement. The purpose of this article is to study the effect of computer-assisted teaching in grammar learning. This article uses evidence in the third-person singular form of English to explore and analyze the role of computer-assisted language learning in English grammar learning. In this article, the students enrolled in the Open University in the spring of 2020 are the research objects. There are 40 learners in the experimental group and the control group. In the experimental group, the teaching mode of computer-assisted language learning is a combination of computer, network and virtual. Real classrooms, while the control group used the traditional grammar teaching model, that is, lectures and problem solving. Through empirical research and teaching between the experimental group and the control group, three research methods: pre-test, post-test, interview and questionnaire survey were used to test the role of computer-assisted language learning in teaching grammar. The results show that the P value of the grammar score data of the pre-test and post-test is less than 0.0005, which is statistically significant. It proves that computer-assisted language learning is very effective for grammar teaching. In the score analysis of the entire test, in the statistical analysis before and after the test, the P value is equal to 0.0002, and it is also statistically significant. It further illustrates that computer-assisted language learning also plays a very good role in promoting English grammar learning.
