What students say about Real Grammar

Before I feel I was stuck with lots of rules when I studied English, but now I feel relieved and I'm enjoying studying and using English. That makes me feel more confident.



This book tells me the reason why we choose this expression rather than the other expression. That's the important thing: to understand how native speakers think and speak.



What teachers say about Real Grammar

With Real Grammar, the students get the ideas behind the rules, so the student can understand in what situations and when in life do we actually use these grammar points... In Real Grammar each point is connected from the beginning to the end so students are really able to see how the points connect together and how the language works as a whole thing, not just as individual rules.

Rather than learning a set of rules and having things explained to you as structures that are isolated, this approach enables the learner to be more active, for the task to be more learner directed and allows the learner to build awareness of one feature but by contrasting it and comparing it to other features that they come across.
