A comprehensive grammar (232 p.) and grammar practise books (50 p.) and 1 audio CD. It covers all the essential issues of English grammar in a way which is accessible to a student with limited vocabulary and grammatical knowledge.
Real English Grammar presents grammar in a fresh and student-friendly way, and with the focus on context. It is designed for use in the classroom or for self-study. The book introduces the use of grammatical terminology, while at the same time explaining the meaning of the terms, so that students gradually become familiar with the concepts and language involved. There are plenty of simple, natural examples of all the grammar explanations. Each unit engages the student from the start with a passage of authentic text, designed to show how the grammatical or lexical area is used in a real context. An audio CD allows the student to listen to these texts read by native speakers at natural speeds in a variety of accents. Exercises and examples throughout Real English Grammar ensure that meaning, as well as form, are clearly understood.
