'The strength of the book is that examples from classroom research are used to demonstrate how meta-language about grammar and meaning can be included, rather than added separately, in a content lesson to support language development... Chapters 3 and 4 contain many valuable subject-based examples, used with both young and adolescent learners... This volume is a welcome addition to work taking this view on how language development is involved in content learning. ...this book is valuable both to TESOL students and practitioners already familiar with a functional approach and to those whose thinking and practice is moving in that direction.' Applied Linguistics
From the Back Cover
Thomson and Martinet's classic intermediate grammar for foreign learners is the most widely used book of its kind. It is popular because its explanations are clear and because it deals thoroughly with the topics which students find most difficult.See all Product Description

It has very clear examples and explanations.
You may read it back to back, you may also jump directly to the topic of interest, because each section is self contained.
It is not burdened by contrived stories about improbable characters running through other intermediate books. This is a book of rules; it goes directly to the point and gives one or two lines long, self-contained examples.
If you are a very advanced lerner you may need to supplement this book, but haven't found another book that does a job as good as this one at a more advanced level. So now, I mainly refer to this book, and in the rare occasions I don't find my answer there I usually have to scavenge dozens of books to find the answer I am looking for
