Learning grammar is not natural. Learning grammar is not fun for most people.
Learning grammar will not make you fluent in a new language.
If you want to become fluent in a new language you need to slowly get used to the language, naturally.
You need to get used to how words are used.
You need to learn how words come together to form phrases and sentences.
If you learn naturally you will speak naturally.
