Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Workbook consists solely of self-study exercises, with answers included, providing students the opportunity to explore and practice grammar independently. It is keyed to explanatory grammar charts in both the Student Book and the Chartbook.

 

Understanding and Using English Grammar is a classic developmental skills text for intermediate to advanced English language learners.

I have taught academic English to university-level non-native speakers for over 30 years, and Azar's grammar series was a solid rock that I could build my courses on...until now.

Yes, this 4th edition has CDs, pretty colored pictures, and lots of conversational exercises, but from an academic perspective, despite its slick add-ons, this is NOT an improvement over the 3rd edition--in fact, in some ways it is a step backwards, particularly for academic-bound international students who may continue to use English internationally.

It is truly dismaying to see what has been deleted from the 3rd Edition to make room in the 4th Ed. for the CD listening exercises and strictly American colloquial items, at a time when internationalized English is most important.

I could write for quite a while about what essential academic English has been sacrificed, but just as one example, the "troublesome verbs" (i.e., raise/rise, sit/set, lay/lie), which often appear on the TOEFL and cannot be dispensed with in formal writing, have been relegated to a brief section in the appendix, and the 3rd Edition's excellent exercise for these verbs has been removed COMPLETELY!

Another thing that is important for university-bound students, the word "whereas" - which was presented in the 3rd Ed. along with "while" as a subordinator showing contrast - is now only mentioned in a small footnote. This is further dismay, considering that "whereas" is in technical writing a more precise, exclusive subordinator to indicate contrast, whereas [!] "while" doubles as a time subordinator.

I'm using this book on its own without the Azar textbook. There are enough practices here that after I teach the topic, the students can work at their own speed and everyone has enough to do during class. Plus, the answers are in the back of the book, so there is no problem for those who got ahead of the rest.

I am a TEFL teacher and like to have many tools in my teaching kit. This is an excellent resource to help explain grammar issues to students. I use a variety of books in helping me to teach. Azar is well know for her use of diagrams and simple, easy to understand explanations.

Format: Paperback
This book is far more advanced than the description led me to believe. I purchased it for one of my adult ESL students who was looking for something he could do on his own at home. This student is middle aged, with little formal education of any kind before coming to the U.S. It was not appropriate for him at all. The print is small and the exercises quite complicated for someone who is new to learning. I do believe it would be appropriate though for ESL students who have had a formal education and are used to doing grammar drills, worksheets, and working independently. One of my students from Brazil (a PhD student at the local university) ended up taking it home and he says that he likes it.
