Patterns of American English: A Guide for Speakers of Other Languages.
Lorenz, Marian Brown
This book is intended for students of English as a second language who have some knowledge of English but who need guidance and intensive structural practice in speaking the language. It contains ten units and provides grammar material for at least a one-semester course at the intermediate level. It is primarily geared to adult students in colleges, universities, adult education programs, and private or governmental programs. The emphasis throughout the book is on the spoken forms used in standard American English, although there are numerous written assignments to expand and reinforce the patterns. Although the primary focus of the book is on mastery of verb tenses, a number of lessons are devoted to countable and uncountable nouns, two-word verbs, positions of adverbs of frequency, uses of adjectives and adverbs, modal auxiliaries, the passive voice, and subordinate clauses.
