9780224101370: English is Not Easy: A Guide to the Language

A quirkily illustrated, brilliantly risqué, but thoroughly practical, guide to the peculiarities of one of the trickiest languages on earth, for (strictly adult) students of English as a foreign language and native speakers alike

Do you know when to use whether opposed to if? For exampIe, I wonder whether I should have added a little more poison to his tea? Or where to place the comma in a conditional sentence? English is Not Easy presents the intricacies of the English language in a whimsically illustrated guide that is appealing even to the grammar averse.

If all other language and grammar guides leave you snoring, look no further. English Is Not Easy doesn’t offer run-of-the-mill phrases about extreme sports and atmospheric conditions that you’ll learn in a generic English textbook. This book offers vocabulary for situations the reader will actually find themselves in. Need an insult? Those are here, too, and imbecile is the kindest of the bunch.

From ‘to be’ to complicated verb tenses and seemingly nonsensical idioms, Luci’s characters, cheeky dialogue, and playful sentences bring the vocabulary, grammar and usage to life. For those who haven’t brushed up on grammar since primary school or non-native English speakers looking to improve conversation, English Is Not Easy is a fresh and infectious guide to revisiting the rules with striking illustrative adventure along the way.
