The English Grammar ebook will help you improve your grammar skills, which will positively affect your writing and communication skills.

We all use language in some form, and most of us effortlessly combine words to effectively communicate with others. Most people find spoken communication particularly effortless, but when we start to communicate ideas in writing, more focus needs to be given to perfecting grammar. In spoken communication, we rely heavily on intonation, pauses, body language, rhythm, inflection and other cues to
understand what is being communicated to us. These cues are not available to us in written communication. Instead, we rely on punctuation and grammar to enhance our communication and reduce misunderstandings.

Grammar then, is a tool through which we can enhance communication through writing (as well as speech). Grammar provides a coherent structure for the expression of thoughts and ideas. By following grammatical rules we are able to compile logical sentences that make sense to the receiver.
