What I was quite surprised about when I received this book was it's general build quality. For £18 odd, I was expecting it to be printed on good quality stock paper. However it's all rather flimsy, the inside is printed on quite cheap paper which is translucent. If you expect to be thumbing through this book a lot as I do, it is not going to last that long. So because of the lack of originality and poor build quality for the price, I give it 3 stars.
Brilliant book for the experienced teacher and the novice alike.
Short chapters are organised around specific pieces of grammar (eg countable and uncountable nouns). Scrivener starts each with a summary of the form of the grammar (very helpful), ideas about presenting this topic, exercises to teach practice, concept checking questions, and often thoughts on meaning and use and common problem areas that students have.
All is presented in a clear and practical format. There is no index, which is a bit of a shame, but otherwise it’s a good teaching resource. It’s not an academic treatise on grammar covering all aspects, and it might have been helpful to give more indication (there is some) of which is most appropriate for different levels of student fluency. With each topic, you will want to treat it like a menu rather than a recipe - pick a few exercises or, indeed, explanations. I guess what I’m saying is it will help you with ideas for explaining and teaching but won’t help you (much) to plan a course of work for students.
I have found it more readable and practical than some of the more extensive tomes that are out there.Read more ›
