Graphic Grammar 1
Brilliantly simple – simply brilliant!
Graphic Grammar is a grammar practice book for students of all ages. Written by best-selling English language authors Jim Rose and Steve Elsworth, the Graphic Grammar series consists of four books, taking the reader from complete Beginner to Early Intermediate stages of English.
Each book has fifty units of grammar, containing an illustration to exemplify the grammar point, with grammar tables, examples, and practice sentences. All of the practice sentences have answers for self-checking.
The language is graded so that the books can be used at home for self-study, or in class with a teacher. The basis of the books is that it is easier to see and understand English grammar than it is to read abstract descriptions. Difficult grammatical areas are tackled – use of definite or indefinite articles, regular and irregular verb formations, verb transformations, pronouns, adjectives and adverbs. Readers are encouraged to see patterns in the English language, making it easier to understand and remember English usage.
This is a completely new approach to English grammar. It takes into account different learning strategies, and simplifies what for many people is a difficult and unapproachable subject.
This is Book 1 in a series of four. It’s for complete beginners, taking in the easy steps – the verb to be, nouns, pronouns, simple verbs, and some guidance for spelling and punctuation. It’s also for learners who need confidence with the basics – like question formation and negatives. No complex explanations, no jargon. Learning English from Graphic Grammar is as easy as reading a cartoon.
