Although a variety of grammar books exist on the market, they are all very similar and are written in the same format. Here is one with a difference: Talk Grammar is particularly compact and easy to use and it emphasises the importance of grammar to communicate effectively. Grammatical rules are clearly explained, in a language that our pupils cannot fail to understand; and the sentences used as examples are relevant and contemporary. The chapters are laid out in a familiar fashion, but it is uncomplicated to navigate through them and the presentation is attractive. There are some challenging consolidation exercises (called ‘checkpoints’) at the end of each chapter and the authors do everything to simplify grammar, for instance by pointing out cognates and false friends or by introducing rules that are easy to remember. The verb tables at the back are essential and there are plenty of opportunities for pupils to boost their vocabulary. At last I have found a grammar book that I know that my pupils will bring to every lesson and consult throughout their A-level language studies. Melvyn Bardou, Head of Languages, Mill Hill School
