    Before buying a book, we as language learners should know in advance the textbook features that best meet our language learning needs.

    These handy tips for buying a book will help us -no doubt about it- to choose the best one.

    Thanks James for sharing this useful information .
    Have a great day!!!

    Hi! Thanks a lot. Great job!
    Which one is correct?
    I’m German/ Iranian.
    I’m a German/ Iranian.

    akbarzahiri

      Both are correct, but they have slightly different meanings! “I’m a A German/Iranian” (the noun) refers to nationality — what country you belong to. “I’m German/Iranian” (the adjective) can refer to nationality as well, but it also means ethnicity. For example, you might be born in Canada, have a Canadian passport, etc., but you can still say “I’m Iranian” when you talk about your family and culture.

Nice lesson, as usual in James (I have to share my opinions becuase I’m blocked yet after the sad Jade argue; very sad).
I agree all the issues you explain. But: I like old books; I love it. I have checked most of the old shops -no only libraries- in London chasing old books about grammar. Certainl, it does’nt tell us anything about internet but I think that the core of the language is the same now than 200 years befores. I don’t know, of course. But ii was a think I wanted to shar with you. Maybe somene is the same opinion. Thanks Adam!!!!!

greenvelvet

    I agree with James. The grammar of a language changes over time.
    We need modern,illustrated books and dictionaries to study the real, contemporary English .

    byte

      No doubt…old books are fascinating! :)

      byte

        I think the same like you. New books are more usefull. But old books mayble explains more things… I don’t know ;)
