Tired of teaching English grammar
when you should be teaching Chinese?

Join the hundreds of teachers no longer wasting class time explaining English grammar — supplement your textbook
with the English Grammar for Students of Chinese.

Students will learn English grammatical terms and concepts that Chinese textbooks assume they know:

Parts of speech — how to identify nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions . . .

Functions of words — how to identify subjects, direct and indirect objects . . .

Grammatical terms — explanation of phrase, clause, possessive . . .

Step-by-step analysis of examples — how to get from an English structure to an equivalent Chinese structure,see example Chapter 28, What is an Adjective?
