    Which of those did you use for Beginner/Elementary and Intermediate?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Hey, I’ve started with an old schoolbook again in 2008, which was a very good starting point for basic English. Since then I went through that Oxford Practice course with answers, for beginner & intermediate level.

    The explanation can be very different from one grammar book to another. So my question is : which one should be recommended.

    A very user-friendly book is Practical English Usage.It's not set out like a traditional grammar, but it covers pretty well everything a student needs to know.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
