Product Description

Review

'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.

Format: Paperback
I was first recommended this book by my English teacher when I was in high school. I read it through and felt I got a pretty good idea about English grammar and English usage in general. It was 15 years ago. Since then I completed my undergraduate and graduate degrees in institutions where English was the language of instruction, and continue using English on work. Often when I see grammar mistakes in writing or speaking, I realise that it was explained in this book and feel greatful what it taught me. I have read many other grammar books but whenever I am not sure, I still go back to this book. My teacher who recommended me this book said exactly the same thing. So I strongly recommend this book for foundation and referrence for English grammar, for those who have not found grammar book they are satisfied with.

This is great book. I bought it almost 10 years ago when I was a "intermediate lerner" and I still use it to refresh my memory from time to time.
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

I was tired about reading one English grammar book after the other and founding something new in each one. Finally I found this book that has every single grammar rule. I strongly recommended it if you really want to master English grammar.

This is a very helpful book. I was looking for examples of some grammar rules for an EFL class and this does the trick!
