Essential Grammar ~ Grrrrrrrrrrrammar!!!!!!!!
Don't growl over grammar.
Try our new approach and both you and your students will be smiling! Do your students think that grammar class is torture? Can they tell a pronoun from a preposition, an indirect object from a direct object? Do they forget grammar rules as soon as they learn them? And even if they remember, can they apply them? Stevenson's Essential Grammar is a different method which uses mnemonic clues to improve memory and draw on the strengths of the right side of the brain. We have used our years of experience solving the toughest educational problems to simplify the teaching of grammar. You no longer need to listen to half your class groan in confusion while the others groan in boredom. Everyone will enjoy the lessons and those who usually lag behind will shine.
