Product Description

Review

'Essential Grammar in Use is highly recommendable for the use of self-study or as supplementary course material because of its clarity, conciseness, illustrative examples, convenient arrangement, and outstanding lay-out.' VVLE Newsletter, Belgium, 1997

'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 … The explanations – always one page – of any grammar item are clear and illustrated not only with good examples but also motivating pictures. On the page facing these explanations you are offered a good selection of exercises. They are easy to understand and also illustrated with pictures.' 'If you feel your students need and also want more of them, there is the volume with the Supplementary Exercises. This means no work for you, you do not have to make up your own examples – it is all there.' ETAS, Switzerland, 1997

Book Description

Essential Grammar in Use bonus extra CD-ROM contains interactive grammar exercises to accompany the book.

Format: CD-ROM
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 more 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential Grammar in Use 10 Jun. 2007
By Anthony Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM Verified Purchase
A very good explanation of various grammar points. The exercises that go with the explanations helps to reinforce the rules of grammar. An excellent homework resource, not just ESL students, but also for native speakers of English.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 29 Jun. 2006
By A. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: CD-ROM
I was so disappointed by this book considering the reviews. Very little if any explanations, nearly all repetitive exercises of the most basic level and no progressive route. A student would struggle to see the point. A teacher would find it boring and simple to a level below elementary.As a teacher and student, I found it both.
