    Default Recommended book of Grammar Worksheets for adults?

    Hello!
    I work mainly with children and feel that one of the weaker areas of my teaching to adults is Grammar ... I have some lovely grammar exercises for children, a whole series of books with stone-age man cartoons dancing all over them, but that's not really appropriate for a medical biologist with a PhD!

    I have a Grammar text book that has a lot of exercises in it, but these are very repetitive and in small dense type ...

    I'm looking for something more like a lesson handout, individual ones for individual topics, with an overview, explanation, list of exceptions (of course) and a few exercises to try ...

    I would also really appreciate an overview of what topics of grammar a beginner adult learner can benefit from addressing, and which topics (perhaps 'Phrasal Verbs') might come along a little later ... Does anyone have a plan of which topics to address first and which later, a progression or 'course outline' for the teaching of grammar to adults? I feel I am cherry-picking somewhat as I address the issues that are presenting themselves in my learner's reading ...

    Many thanks,
    Helen
