THE PAIN VANISHES WHEN
ENGLISH INTO FUN--
The authors take you through all parts of speech--nouns, pronouns, verbs, modifiers, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. They also tell you how to improve your English vocabulary and pronunciation, and they give you tips on how to recognize silent letters and homophones. The book's final chapters coach you in written English, advancing from simple rules of punctuation and sentence structure to writing essays and stories. The authors' gradual, step-by-step approach makes the mastery of English a truly painless process--especially if your first language is other than English.
