Product Description

Review

'The first major improvement is that there are many more exercises … more of the exercises require the student to think and make a choice. Whole new sections have been added such as the one on verbs … … the new editions use a second colour to highlight important information. This means that not only are the new editions more pleasing to the eye, but it is also easier to find your way around.' Standpoints, 1994

'Considering the clarity and simplicity of explanation, easy-to-use design and the triple system of finding 'your' grammar point you will soon start wondering how you could survive without the 'blue-cover Murphy' for so long.' ATECR Newsletter

'Never heard of Murphy? Well, then it is high time you rush to the nearest book shop and buy it. It is still the best grammar book and has been so for the last 12 years.' ETAS, Switzerland, 1997 'I am sure Raymond Murphy's English Grammar in Use (EGIU) is never out of your reach. It's a gem.' EA Journal

'Improved layout, an added study guide, and an additional exercise section. I ask all my students to buy this grammar, even beginners because with my help they can benefit from the clear explanations already at an early stage and it saves me a lot of blackboard writing.' ETAS Newsletter, 1995

'English Grammar in Use is an excellent workbook and a good guide to understanding grammar and the four macro skills for use in groups and in individaul practice work.' VATME Newsletter, 1995

Book Description

A self-study reference and practice book for intermediate and more advanced students, which combines clear, accurate language presentation on left-hand pages with thorough varied practice on right-hand pages, and providing additional exercises, useful appendices, a detailed key and a study guide.

Format:Paperback
The whole series is invaluable to EFL / ESL teachers and students. Strongly recommended for practical use in the classroom and self study for students.
Those new to teaching foreign students will also find this book helpful for improving their own grammar. Exercises in the book can be used in lessons making this book a long-term investment.

...if it were possible I would have given 10 stars to this book!
The units are perfectly well organized.
It is really a self-study reference and practice book for intermediates, as mentioned on the front cover.
It not only talks about each subject in general, but also gives very many and very illustrative examples. Whenever appropriate, it compares with other grammatical forms.
One more important thing about this book is that it warns you about what "not to say"... This clears all the doubts in your mind about confusing alternatives.
There is also a section about the differences of American English an British English.
I use this book as a reference. I covers almost all the topics in English Grammar. Whenever I feel I need to repeat some subject, I just find the corresponding unit(s) from the contents. Usually there is no need to read all the previous units in order to be able to understand the "unit" that "you need" to study.
What else can I say!
Special thanks to Raymond Murphy and Cambridge University Press for this wonderful product.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent English grammar book 3 Oct 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I teach English to foreign students, they love this book. It is well laid out with lots of examples and exercises. It is part of a series and this (blue) book is best for intermediate students. I also recommend the other (red) book in the series for elementary students ISBN 3-12-533605-8 and the supplementary exercises that go with the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice price 19 Jan 2008
Format:Paperback
This edition is my favourite.

I've been using and recommending EGIU for over 20 years (oh my..). Raymond Murphy must owe me 's in commissions ;-)

At this price, order 2.

If your class is going to buy the book, then you'll need the newest edition. Very cunning of you to change it ever so slightly every new edition, Cambridge University Press

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 17 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Murphy is a classic in TEFL. The students like the way grammar is broken into pieces and made accessible. I have had many students who despised 'grammar' but loved 'Murphy'. Each grammar point is explained using easily understandable examples. There are illustrations to lighten up the entries, but also to clarify situations. Timelines are used throughout the book and there are many useful tables. Every entry consists of two pages. On the left the grammar is explained, on the right, there are exercises for the students.
There is another Murphy for less advanced students. When copying exercises, take care that the book you use for your course material might not teach all the aspects of a point of grammar at the same time.
There is also a third book (not by Murphy) for advanced students. It is different in style, even though it looks similar.

By Kitaj
Format:Paperback
This is the ideal grammar book for basic grammar learning. The book is laid out in an intuitive way and works through all the most relevant aspects of grammar. There is a page per topic with some of the broader topics taking up two or three sections. Each section has a gap-fill exercise next to it and some topics have further gap-fill exercises at the back of the book. It is a useful guide for teachers and can also form the basis for students to work alone. I teach individual learners and it's a nightmare finding suitable books for them as we can't do group or pair work. This book resolves quite a number of those issues and I would strongly recommend it.
