The most immediately obvious thing I can think of is to try to encourage him to read more, so he sees more examples of written English in different genres. If you ask his school's English department they may be able to provide a reading list. Your local library should have ideas too. And there are various threads on here with suggested reading material for different age-groups.

Many thanks for your reply. Today I purchased How it Works a magazine full of interesting topics ranging from history, science and technology I'm hoping this will trigger his interest.
