This book was first published as 'A Very Simple Grammar of English' and no, it is not new, but how quickly does Grammar change? Language changes, of course, but English Grammar, such as verb forms, the basic pattern of asking questions, reported speech, etc., has not changed much during the 25 years since 'First English Grammar' appeared. It was introduced to me on a post-graduate Linguistics course. The group was given several Grammar books to look at and criticise. At the end of the session we were asked to decide which book we considered best. Unanimously we chose this book, even though each one of us was initially afraid to say so because it looked so simple. The tutor summed it up: it is excellent for its purpose. It isn't intended as a book of exercises; it is a concise reference book, with clear, short examples. Despite its slim format it covers a diversity of Grammar points frequently brought up by students in the classroom. This book is clearly set out and easy to use for both teachers and students. It is also a useful personal reference book.

The Nun to whom I sent the grammar has been delighted with it since she has been able to help foreign nuns with their understanding of English

This book was recommended reading for my Cert TESOL. It only cost a couple of pounds or so but I really found it rather useless. I didn't find the style or examples very useful at all. It's quite outdated and there are much more user friendly and classroom friendly books. To learn grammar I used Parrott, which was very informative and well laid out. Other people on the course are glowing about Murphy. I wouldn't recommend anyone even bother spending £2 on this book. Get something a bit more up to date. I'm wondering if there are grammar books out there that have good classroom activities in as well. Not just learning grammar for yourself, but how do you teach it.
