English as a New Language Handbook is a practical, convenient reference for students learning English as a second language.

It covers all elements of grammar with clear explanations, descriptions and examples. There is special emphasis on the areas where students have the most difficulty, such as verbs and tenses.

Sections four and five concentrate on writing skills.

Section five contains writing exercises designed mainly for self assessment.

This is a book intended to be used throughout the day, to help solve problems with spoken or written English when they occur. However, it is also a suitable book for classroom use and course work.
