This book is a compilation of 100 questions frequently asked of (and by) teachers. It offers direct answers to the whys and wherefores of various structures and expressions. Such questions, though regularly encountered, are not always easily answered, and many grammar books do not address them. This book fills the gap by providing clear answer and solutions to common problems, enabling teachers and students to use the language with greater confidence.
Features of This Book - Questions are genuine questions repeatedly encountered in the English language classroom in Singapore, questions that baffle even experienced teachers.
- Answers are clearly worded and illustrated with relevant examples.
