Reviews

Praise for Routledge Modern Grammars -

'The entire series is outstanding. Why? Because it's totally practical without getting stuck in grammatical obscurities. It reflects the actual, contemporary use of the language as it is used by ordinary, educated speakers.' - Harold Goodman, author of the Michel Thomas courses
