Review quote

'The organisation is the first thing that hits you about this book. It's different. And refreshingly so. Grammar for English Language Teachers speaks with admirable simplicity without ever being condescending or shallow. In fact some of the explanations are the most accurate and easy to understand I have ever seen in any grammar book. There's a feeling of integrity and honesty towards both the language and the teacher which leaps off the page. Grammar for english Language Teachers ... would be valuable addition to any keen teacher's box of tricks. Ten out of ten. Well done!' The TEFL Farm 'When summing up typical difficulties for learners, Martin Parrott proves that he knows what he is talking about from the perspective of a real classroom envoironment...for prospective and practising teachers and teacher trainers, I consider the book an invaluable bank of ideas, tasks and inspiration for developing language awareness of their students and their own.' English Department, Faculty of Education, Technical University of Liberec, Czech Republic 'Grammar for English Language Teachers is a refreshingly new type of grammar reference book for practising teachers as well as trainees.'
