I would recommend this book to learners of English because it gives all the very basic ingredients of the language such as where to place apostrophes, the use of articles or determiners as they are often called, and just as importantly the requirement to stay in one tense when telling a story. The English language can be difficult to newcomers so this book is a very handy companion to a dictionary.

1.0 out of 5 stars Be aware this is the Australian Edition 3 Jan 2014
Just a warning as this is the Australian Edition so not much use. To be honest I should have read it more carefully, but it does not make it clear.
