5.0 out of 5 stars Five star approach to real grammar
This book really is a gem given its size and the amount of grammar it covers. It is invaluable for answering all of the difficult questions TESOL teachers may face, e.g. phrasal verbs, modality and compound nouns etc. It also explains why written and spoken grammars are so different, and should be treated as so. All of the examples used are from a corpus of real language...

3.0 out of 5 stars Longman Student Grammar - Could Be Longer
Very useful revision book for students and professionals who need to understand how the English language works. There are answers included so you can check your progress. My only criticism would be that the book is quite slim - I did not feel that I had properly consolidated a topic before moving onto the next one. More please.

3.0 out of 5 stars Longman Student Grammar - Could Be Longer, 2 Feb 2009
This review is from: Longmans Student Grammar of Spoken and Written English Workbook (Grammar Reference) (Paperback)
Very useful revision book for students and professionals who need to understand how the English language works. There are answers included so you can check your progress. My only criticism would be that the book is quite slim - I did not feel that I had properly consolidated a topic before moving onto the next one. More please. This book offers practical exercises as a companion book to The Longman Student's Grammar of Spoken and Written English (Grammar Practice). It is recommended for advance study by the Open University for a level 3 course E303 'English Grammar in Context'. This course provides you with a really good CD-Rom with extensive practical exercises. Perhaps Longman's could consider offering such a CD-Rom as an additional learning aid. I found this hyper link to a grammar DVD but I have not seen it. English Grammar: Sentence Structure [2004] (REGION 1) (NTSC). Also these CD-Roms might be useful English Grammar In Use with Answers and CD ROM Klett Edition: A Self-study Reference and Practice Book for Intermediate Students of English,Macmillan English Grammar in Context Intermediate with Key and CD-ROM Pack,Advanced Grammar in Use With CD ROM.

All of the examples used are from a corpus of real language. I have used it both in my undergraduate and now post-graduate work. It is simply the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grammar Workbook Works Wonders, 13 Feb 2012

This review is from: Longmans Student Grammar of Spoken and Written English Workbook (Grammar Reference) (Paperback)
Having already purchased the Student Grammar, I realised that the Workbook would be a useful addition. What I hadn't realised was exactly how useful. I would urge anyone thinking of purchasing the Grammar to buy the workbook at the same time. It is easy to use, provides plenty of useful exercises to help cement the knowledge shared in the Grammar and is well presented.

If you want to brush up on your English grammar or simply test you or your glass but I wish I had bought the Grammar book and the workbook together to save on postage.

Looks good looks comprehensive Could be a bit bigger I wear glasses print a bit small.This book would be suitable for anyone studying English in any capacity.Would be particularly useful for Esl student teacher. I like the fact of it being a work book.A virtual teacher.I wanted some way of testing myself and to identify my weak areas.
