Format: Paperback
it isn't the normal TEFL teacher bible..this gives excellent guidelines on how to teach and how to prepare properly for a grammar class..it doesn't waste time by giving examples of exercises as this is the easy part to prepare, instead it dedicates time on what you as the teacher may need to know in order to answer the students questions..its a must have!!!

This book is an invaluable resource for EFL teachers. It is well laid out and has a good index, making it easy to find exactly what you are looking for. It is packed full of useful tips for teaching grammar, a subject many find difficult. I would highly recommend it.

This book came in very useful, I purchased it before commencing TEFL training, I had forgoten how in depth English Grammar was, even as a native, it shows how much a native takes for granted. It even covered subjects I don't remember studying at school. Very clear and concise, it does what it says on the tin.

This is excellent book for either getting back to basics or for those who are new to efl. Although if the latter applies to you, be prepared for some serious head melting. The only faults I could find were as follows: Sometimes he will mention a grammar term and not actually explain for another 2 or 3 chapters what it is. This is fine if you are only using it as a reference book, but if you are using it as a study book (like me) it is a little annoying. This works in reverse also when sometimes he mentions a description for a grammar term and he doesn't use the word that you learned a few chapters ago to describe it. There are also a few example sentences and words that are totally irrelevant and no-one would ever use. In saying all this I am really glad I bought the book and my language analysis has vastly improved

A must have if like me the education system in this country let you down a little when it came to that frightening thing called GRAMMAR.
There are a LOT of books out there devoted to this subject but I can recommend this book as a (good) basic start to understanding the structure of our GRAMMAR.
By the way.....you are not alone.....I sometimes think that half the country don't understand their own GRAMMAR and parts of it are fairly easy to pick up with a book like this.

The book that I have purchased has been very useful for my English learning course. It was a recommended purchase, and I do not regret the decision to purchase it. So far, it has proved to be very useful, especially with sentence and verb tenses and gerunds.

It is definitely a must buy for any future TEFL teachers. Highly recommended. Will be getting more use out of it, that's for sure.

I first came across this book doing my CELTA course five years ago, and although I no longer teach English as a foreign language, I am now doing a PhD and I always recommend this book to my classes, as an aid in writing their essays, and to my academic colleagues.

It is still such a relief to have a succinct reference for points of grammar which come up with regularity in students' coursework whether they are native English speakers or not (it seems that grammar tuition is so bad in some areas of the U.K. that many foreign students are better than their native speaking classmates). This book is still the best for the purpose.
