This book is quite good. I just got it to use with my students. I’ve been trying to find a good that focuses on the sentence syntax structure – not many grammar books address this. And this book is pretty good in it.

One thing we must realize is that sentence syntax structure is much easier to grasp for European students but for Asian students whose first language has a very different structure, it’s difficult. Thanks!
