Top 10 Great Grammar for Great Writing

Best English Grammar Book (Pdf) Top 10 Great Grammar for Great Writing

Top 10 Great Grammar for Great Writing is one of the best English Grammar Book that you should learn. 

Top 10 offers instruction and writing practice in ten essential grammar areas for better English writing. ESL writers at the intermediate level tend to produce writing with a high number of surface-level errors, especially errors in grammar. Top 10 addresses these types of errors while working on building better sentences and paragraphs.

Because editing of student writing is a primary objective for many courses at the intermediate level, many exercises in Top 10 deal with editing or with producing original writing followed by editing. These exercises attempt to focus students’ attention on common grammatical errors and then teach students various options for making corrections.

Grammar Reviews and Explanations

The English grammar reviews and explanations have been written to focus specifically on problems that occur in student writing, not in speech. Top 10 is not meant to be an exhaustive grammar book; it reviews common problem areas and helps students focus their attention on the gap between how they are writing and how they should be writing. Because of this, teachers may note the absence of certain grammar points. For example, in Chapter 2,

Review of Verbs,” instead of covering all the verb tenses in English, we focus on six common tenses. Our analysis of student writing needs indicates that it is more prudent for intermediate ESL writers to focus their attention on these specific tenses, so we have limited our instruction and subsequent practice to just these six.

In contrast, a comprehensive grammar book would most likely provide a chart with all twelve verb tenses, including less common tenses such as future perfect progressive.
