Be sure to check out the website that goes along with the book. It's super helpful.
Ah! Someone else on the internet who knows of this text book! It seems to be little known...
Yes I think it is a very good book, though I have limited experience in being able to judge that. I agree that some of the word definitions given are a little obscure and also they seem to vary between being rather narrow in scope or too broad in possible translations. It seems to give very clear, thorough and helpful explanations of grammar which I like
I take it the website you refer to is http://www.leakyroofproductions.com/
? Yes our teacher told us about that site, it has some very useful excercises. The only downside I find is the lack of macrons used but I suppose that is down to preference.
Thanks for the reply
