Our national language, and the culture from which it has formed, is the rightful inheritance of all English-speaking people. It deserves to be taught with knowledge and respect. English is now spoken, also, by more than 500 million people around the world. They need the opportunity to learn to speak and write it confidently, and correctly. Grammar provides a language to talk about language. As a mechanic needs naming words for the parts of an engine, so a student needs naming words for the components of speech and writing. This practical book provides all who learn or teach Grammar with these skills in a clear step-by-step process. It provides teachers with an armoury of learning strategies to use at all levels. Grammar should be fun to teach and fun to learn.
