The Good Grammar Book‏‎ (book)

Teaching Materials

Author:Michael Swan ; Catherine Walter
Publisher:Oxford University Press
Details:Paperback; 304 pages; Pub.2003

This grammar book teaches all the grammar needed for speaking and writing in English. It explains the rules, shows how the language works, and gives plenty of practice. It has pre-tests and review tests. It also commits a number of pages to each grammar point, with an equal amount of practice pages.

It can be used either with the coursebook in class or as extra practice at home.

The back of the book states it’s for elementary to pre-intermediate learners, but some teachers feel it could be a little advanced for elementary level students.

A very popular book with university teachers, and highly recommended for self-study too.
