When you walk in for an interview, meet a client for dinner or address an audience. The impacts of your thoughts are translated through your words and the way you use them. English is a complicated language construed from many different languages and constantly being redefined. It's one of the most widely spoken languages worldwide and each part of the world has its own interpretations to the way words are used. It is difficult to convey simple messages in the right spirit, creating the impact you desired without facing common communicational barriers such as sounding aggressive or too passive.

They world responds to those who are clear in their thought but one cannot showcase clarity without a firm grasp of the language's core, which is grammar. The right usage of words in the correct syntax can have far more influence rather than a bunch of high sounding words roughly stringed together. Coming back to the example of meetings, interviews or public speeches, science proves that the effectiveness of any communication lies less in the words used, instead more than sixty percent of the impact lies in the way it is used. To sway opinions in your favour it is important to strike at the heart.

Making that right impression starts with what we say and how we say it. Be it spoken or written English, the reader feels connected only when he doesn't have to decipher through what you are actually trying to say. The use of tact and innovation in language comes from a firm grasp of the English language and this expertise can only be achieved with a firm understanding of the grammar.

  1.  a good practice book 7 August, 2013 On
    I am neither very weak nor very strong in English, but if you ask me-"ram is going to school-which tense is it?", i can't answer it. i have skipped many English classes and now i regret it.So, i wanted to learn English grammar from the very basic level, like noun, pronoun, tense and so on. so, i ordered this book and thought my English worries were over, except they weren't. This book doesn't teaches you essential English grammar as it claims. In fact it is only a practice book with short descriptions of grammar, though i must add a very good one.

    so buy this only if you want to practice essential English grammar, not to understand it.
