Descriere

This is not a textbook! I repeat. This is not a textbook! Too many people go through twelve years of education, and some people, four years of college and still make the same simple few grammatical errors over and over again. Is the correct word "I" or "me", "bad" or "badly", "lie" or "lay"? Don't go through life making the same simple grammatical errors and confusing your sophisticated listener. Whether that sophisticated listener is your boss in a business setting or a person you are speaking to in a social setting, "SAY WHAT YOU MEAN" and say it with confidence.

Despre autor

The author has been an English teacher for a number of years. He has also taught at various levels including high school, university and extension courses. While a principal of a high school, he earned a doctorate at Fordham University. As a retiree, he was amazed at the many simple grammatical errors made by prominent, professionals and, in general, people who should communicate effectively. As a result, this booklet was written in order to improve communication and thinking using the English language. A very simple example is when a person says, "He don't have no money." Does he mean he has money or does he mean he has no money?
