It's excellent for ESL teachers and students.
Karen S. Salina
I have a CD in my copy of the book, it is really useful for the student to be able to listen to it & learn from it, whether I am available or not.
Colleen
The structure of the book is excellent: grammar information on one page, grammar exercises using that information on the very next page, repeat.

I'm a new ESL teacher, teaching beginning English speakers. This book is an excellent resource, very systematic and organized with excellent progression of topics, explaining in baby steps, then providing work sheets. It's excellent for ESL teachers and students.

As an ESL/EFL teacher, I have found the entire Grammar In Use series to be extraordinarily helpful. If a student is having trouble with a specific grammatical issue, I often steer them toward specific pages in these books. The grammar is well presented without being so thorough as to bog a student down with too much information. The structure of the book is excellent: grammar information on one page, grammar exercises using that information on the very next page, repeat.

For this price, you can't really go wrong.

I do like this series of books, and recently bought the 3rd Edition of this book after having used the 2nd edition for many years. However, I have found that the 3rd edition is exactly the same as the 2nd edition, word for word.
The worksheets and instructions are exactly the same, only the pictures have been changed. While it is a good book, you can find 2nd editions for cheaper.

To be honest, I am not very good at computers and electronic word editing, but it would take me less than 8 hours to make the changes from the 2nd edition to the 3rd edition. With a name like Cambridge on the cover I expected more. So, the max I can give is 3 stars due to the laziness of the writers.

I have been teaching ESL in many forms to many nationalities since '94. In all of that time there are several books that I swear by (& not at ;-) for helping me & my students - this is one of them.
This is very specific & to the point, good examples & I rarely find errors. I have a CD in my copy of the book, it is really useful for the student to be able to listen to it & learn from it, whether I am available or not.

My other ESL 'go to' books are; OPD / Oxford Picture Dictionary 9780194700597, Year in the life of an ESL student 9781604945348 (best I've found for idioms), Clear Grammar (the whole series of 4 sets of book + workbook) 9780472032419, & this one - Basic Grammar.

So far, after many years of trial & error, these are the nucleus of my ESL teaching library. I would also caution anyone to ensure the student adds an excellent physical bilingual dictionary - not just use the online dictionaries. I push the student to learn some online - especially sound, but also ensure (through questioning, essays & example) that they learn independent vocabulary & can utilize that vocab knowledgeably in essays, etc.

Enjoy!

When you decide to improve your english skills, it could results very difficult if you haven't the correct material or an appropiate study guide. The "Grammar in use" books collection is the perfect way to improve or study the American English grammar

This is a great book to help in reinforcing English, the self study reference is a great help almost as if my teacher is assisting me as I study independently. I would recommend this book to anyone trying to improve their skills with English.

This books works very well with the Grammar class I teach. I'm happy with with it and can use it for private tutoring along with whole-class practice.
