GRAMMAR provides the practising language teacher with a clear and straightforward overview of this complex subject. It describes the nature of grammar, its role in language learning and language use, and how it can be taught most effectively. Using examples from published materials, the book invites readers to apply these ideas in their own teaching. There is much of relevance for teachers working within both traditional and innovative syllabuses.
