Innovation Awards winner at the TESL Canada (Teachers of English as a Second Language) Conference in Niagara Falls, June 8, 2017, EASY ADVANCED GRAMMAR is the third of a three-level series, coming after EASY ESSENTIAL GRAMMAR and EASY INTERMEDIATE GRAMMAR. Designed for second language learners who have acquired a basic understanding of English, it focuses on clearly presenting items that cause the most difficulty, such as prepositional expressions, complex sentence structure and verb tenses.
EASY ADVANCED GRAMMAR is divided into ten main parts: nouns (plurals), determiners, prepositions, adjectives and adverbs, pronouns, punctuation, sentence structure, verbs, question formation and capitalization. A glossary and an irregular verb chart are also included as well as lists of 90 idiomatic expressions, 50 phrasal verbs and numerous expressions (adjectives and nouns followed by prepositions, for example). Most of these points are presented in easy-to-consult charts containing examples (no fewer than 1500) that illustrate usage. A coloured-index and different codes are designed to help students loacte the needed item rapidly. Particular rules and special exceptions are explained below the corresponding charts.
In this innovative reference tool, we have selecetd the items of grammar that help students understand the relationship between the parts of a sentence, so they can avoid the ambiguities and misunderstandings which result from oral and written communication.
