Christine Sinclair, "Grammar: Getting it Right"
English | ISBN: 0335220088 | 2007 | PDF | 144 pages | 4,3 mb
This is a grammar book with a difference. It brings grammar to life by giving examples of grammatical problems in the contexts where they arise by including a soap opera. As the characters grammar improves, so will yours.
It blends a story about three students - Barbara, Kim and Abel - with advice on specific areas of grammar. The characters story builds throughout the book, but each chapter can be read separately if readers want to focus on specific grammatical issues.
The book examines and clearly explains aspects of grammar, language use and punctuation such as:
Correct use of tenses
Active and passive voices
Sentence construction and punctuation
When and where to place an apostrophe
Using grammar checkers
