The Easiest-to-Use, Most Up-to-Date Grammar Workbook for Improving Your Daily Communication The English language is expansive and complex. The rules are always changing, and grammar advice from a century or even a few years ago may not apply today. If you want to communicate with clarity and credibility--if you want people to focus on what you're saying, rather than how you're saying it--then you need to use excellent grammar. Editor, linguistic expert, and self-proclaimed "grammar cheerleader" Lisa McLendon has spent her career finding ways to use language effectively and correctly. Lisa knows that the primary reason people are uneasy about writing and public speaking is because they aren't confident in their grammar skills.

In The Perfect English Grammar Workbook you'll find: EASY-TO-FOLLOW LESSONS organized by how we naturally learn--simple instructions followed by self-directed quizzes RELEVANT, ENGAGING EXAMPLES that demonstrate grammar rules with wit, humor, and contemporary appeal RECENT, UP-TO-DATE RULES based on the English language we use today A WIDE VARIETY OF EXERCISES that make learning fun HELPFUL FEATURES FOR CLASSROOM USE including standalone answer keys for easy photocopying and color-coded pages for quick navigation Finding the best grammar workbook can be difficult.
