This book addresses the important question of how we can get our students to understand and internalise the grammar that we teach them. Each section is headed by a statement beginning I can ..., thereby mirroring the ‘can-do’ statements of the CEFR, and presenting the learning of grammar in terms of achievement and success, rather than as an uphill struggle. The information is ‘bite-sized’ and easily accessible.
The book contains high-quality illustrations, photographs and diagrams, which give a visual representation of how English grammar works.
As the author says in his introductory address to the student: ‘Grammar practice doesn’t have to be boring!’ This book even gives the impression that it might be fun. The timelines which demonstrate the sequence and meaning of the different tenses are particularly successful, and teachers who have struggled to draw their own timelines on the board will find these invaluable. The text explanations are clear and helpful, too.
This book is aimed at elementary-level students and intended for both self-study and classroom use.
