English Grammar in Use, Beginner and Intermediate Books.
As a linguist and having taught a lot of ESL English in both Europe and Asia for many years, this book is outstanding in its simple presentation of the basic facts that all students need. The veritable bible of English Grammar! Whatsmore, all taught with the universal principle of timelines. The only way forward!
This book provides the hardcore skeleton of ESL language learning, leaving plenty of room for teachers to improvise, create and adapt multiple activities and games from other sources in and around this backbone.
The concept of time lines has been with me for 35 years! It provides a holistic understanding of the movement of verbs. I can think of no better way to teach language than this!
I have been a longterm fan of R. Murphy and have just included his books in the freshman syllabus at my university in China: 500 copies no less!
Try it! The layout starting with the progression in the index is perfect.
Serious language students love and appreciate this book.
Thanks Raymond! See you in Seoul at the beginning of November!
