Grammar Talk - 97 edition

Grammar Talk (ISBN10: 0136281737; ISBN13: 9780136281733)
ISBN13: 978-0136281733
ISBN10: 0136281737

Summary: Overcomes students' initial fear of grammar and uses a focused and practical approach that connects functional grammar problems and respects and encourages the students' innate "ear" for grammar. Clear, step-by-step explanations and a wide variety of reinforcement drills and exercises --listening, speaking, editing, and writing -- help students learn the differences between appropriate and inappropriate usage and to recognize and use standard English.

Keeps explanations of grammar rules short, focused, and light -- using a minimum of terminology.

Explains everything step by step and carefully.

Provides abundant exercises -- including paragraphs for editing and sentences for reading aloud.

Drills immediately follow any rule or principle.

Assumes that grammar in the native speaker is a built-in skill, and that the best sense for grammar in the native speaker is the ear.

Follows each grammar explanation with a short summary of every main point (In a Nutshell).

Ends every chapter with three types of exercises: A Unit Test that tests student mastery of the chapter.
A Unit Talking Assignment that gives students the opportunity to interact in group sessions and put their ear to use in practicing the contents of the chapter.
A Unit Writing Assignment that gives students the chance to apply the writing principles they have just learned. Features unique Ear Alert warnings (marked with icons in text margins) that warn students about points of grammar on which the ear simply cannot be trusted.
