An essential supplemental grammar guide for students of German (with English as a first or main language, of course), this handy little tome not only does quite an amazing job simply and succinctly presenting the basics of English grammar, it also then compares and contrasts them with German grammar (detailing both similarities and main differences with regard to grammatical cases, syntax, verb forms etc.). After realising that I was often forced to teach my first year German language students ...more

A concise and non-intimidating guide to grammar. The idea is, concepts of English grammar are reintroduced and compared with the German, presumably because the poor student had a teaching-disabled teacher in their formative years (extremely common, to be sure) and thus didn't learn the grammar of their own language thoroughly enough, or at all.

It's unfortunate that it has come to this, but it's a welcome aid.

suprisingly helpful especially when dealing with prefix and infinitive splitting in verb fronted statements. wunderbar!

This little book is very useful for native English speakers learning German. The juxtaposition of English grammar explanations with their German counterparts is incredibly useful. I found the explanations in this book far exceed the utility of those in the typically assigned German textbook. The book is broken down into many chapters that focus narrowly on a particular grammatical element. This is quite useful to the language learner who is learning a new concept or struggling with an old one. ...more

nett geschriebene grammatik. nicht angsteinflößend aufgemacht, sondern fängt bei null an und vergleicht deutsche und englische grammatikalische strukturen (In English: bla bla bla. In German: grosser AHA-Effekt für mich!). Ich sehe die Grammatik momentan als kleine Entdeckungsreise in meine Muttersprache! fun and crumpets! (in German: Spass und Tee-Teilchen! ;-)

This book reviews formal concepts of grammar and comparatively presents them in English and German. If you don't know off the top of your head the difference between case and voice, or the distinction between the present perfect and past tenses, this book will aid you immensely. Highly recommended for any English-speaking student of German.

Quickly read through this before my exam, very helpful! With the sections on the subjunctive and passive were beefed up a little bit more, though!
