This chapter serves as a swift reminder of very basic grammar (with useful suggestions for additional reading for students requiring further detail) offering quick and simple reference. After reminding students of the various good reasons for thinking carefully about grammar, as well as spelling and vocabulary, the fundamental topics covered are divided into two parts. The first includes sentences, types and their correct construction; word classes (parts of speech); clauses and phrases; the active and passive voice. The second deals with the fundamentals of punctuation: full stops and commas; colons and semi-colons; the apostrophe. The whole chapter is illustrated with ample examples and explanations.
