It is both a grammar version and a workbook on how language structures link together. Grammar features and terminology are simplified with plenty of exercises cautioning against mistakes.

The book includes more than 400 useful exercises on how to correct errors when writing English, more than 400 suggested correct versions of erroneous samples with useful explanation, and hundreds of lively and authentic material from the mainstream English language publications.

English Grammar and Functions: by a non-native, for the non-native

Almost all English Grammar textbooks are written by native speakers of English. The way native and non-native speakers learn grammar is diametrically opposite:
– native speakers learn subconsciously, but on the other hand
– non-native speakers learn consciously.

Most Grammar books on the market do a good job making the grammar easy to understand, but not a good job making the grammar easy to remember and we all know that
Understand doesn’t mean Remember.

Non-native speakers understand the rules of English grammar, but can’t use them in a sentence, use quickly and correctly in a real-life situation. What makes my book different is that it is written by a non-native speaker of English, from the viewpoint of someone who has consciously studied English grammar and is very much aware of how non-native speakers perceive and produce grammar.

– This book is for all learners of English – elementary, intermediate and advanced. The grammar covered accounts for 99% of all grammar used by non-native speakers of English.
– This book is also for language teachers – non-native and native alike. My unique take on English grammar will most certainly prove invaluable to fellow English teachers.

Although this book is sold as a standalone textbook, it is best used as supplementary material to my first book Virtually Native. Grammar is not something that should be studied in isolation, grammar is an integral part of one’s overall approach to language and I’ve laid out my approach/method of learning English in my first book Virtually Native.

    Hello) Maybe you have something to learn Russian but for young people… ? thanks)

      Michael, I found : Raymond H.N. Learn in Your Car Russian: The Complete Language Course. Level 1, 2, 3
      The Learn in Your Car series treats you like a child – in the best possible way – starting with one-word phrases (“please,” “good-bye”), counting exercises, and simple nouns (“bus,” “train”) designed to imitate a child’s learning process. First you hear the words in English, then they are repeated slowly in clear, unaccented pronunciations. The method is extremely effective for those who don’t know a thing, or for those who want to brush up by testing themselves when the English words are spoken. The tapes emphasize the building blocks of communicating in a foreign country rather than rote phrases that only apply on the tape and not in real-life exchanges. Level 1 painlessly covers basic verb forms, essential prepositions, near future and past tenses, as well as shopping, hotel reservations, and other travel-related situations.
      Level 1: Key words and phrases, basic grammar skills, emphasizes travel needs; Level 2: Expands vocabulary, new grammar concepts, more day-to-day activities; Level 3: Broadens vocabulary base, more advanced grammar skills, enriches conversational ability.
      Listeners learn pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar of a new language. Convenient to use while driving, working out or anywhere!
