WHAT JOHN SAXON DID FOR MATH, FRODE JENSEN DOES FOR GRAMMAR!
 

Jensen’s Grammar lessons and exercises were built with three concepts in mind. First, spaced repetition is the key to learning; hence, there is review in every lesson. Second, the information is given incrementally; that is, the material comes in a natural progression of detail and concept interwoven so as to move you along with something new each lesson while fitting it in with the material previously learned and practiced. Third, the sentences in the exercises will generally set a scene or describe an action. Thus, they are usually more interesting reading in themselves instead of the random sentences in exercises found in most grammar texts.

Students completing this course will learn valuable skills.

  • how to create, place, and punctuate relative clauses in order to write more sophisticated sentences
  • a simple procedure to reduce the number of words in a sentence to help you search for subjects and verbs
  • how to use a simple chart that unlocks the mystery of differentiating the major parts of speech
  • how to use the words and structures you are being taught in your own sentences
  • understanding the fundamentals of grammar in such a way that you will not forget them but will use them effectively

From the author - "This book has many things going for it. The lessons are simple and direct. The exercises constantly repeat what has been formally taught. New ideas are approached incrementally in a digestible form. The nature of the exercises force the students to use what they have learned. In particular, this is true with the formula sentences the students are required to produce almost immediately. This book is different. Yes, it is a lot of work, but there is no such thing as a free lunch in learning how to write. The total focus in this book is on the sentence. Grammar is a means, not an end."
