Introduction

Hey, everyone! Thanks for picking up this book. I’m a native New Yorker who started on an English teaching journey in 1994 in Sendai, Japan. At first, I thought teaching English would be easy. Boy, was I surprised!  Sure, English has a lot of grammar rules, but I soon realized that in many situations, those rules, their exceptions, and even some “non-rules” made learning and teaching English pretty tough. For example, I knew  that in English, we use many before countable nouns (many pens, many people) and much before uncountable nouns (much rain, much love). But one day,one of my students said, “I ate much food last night,” which  sounded weird to me. When I tried to figure out why, I couldn’t find the answer in any of the grammar books I had. I realized that while most books will teach you how to make the grammar (the structure), they don’t  teach you how to apply it. That’s how I became motivated to write this book. The lessons here will help you become more articulate and confident using English in your writing and everyday English conversations.
