    Default Goog Grammar Book

    Hi

    My first language is Portuguese and I have difficult in writing phrases, paragraphs, and essays in English. I need a good grammar book that could help me to communicate better. A book with rules and tips showing how/why English grammar works. Could you please help me?

    Thank you :)

    I like Michael Swan: http://www.usingenglish.com/amazon/uk/0194421465.html

    Here are a couple of sites that might help:
    http://www.sk.com.br/sk.html
    http://www.english.sk.com.br/sk-fals.html

    I used to live in Portugal, so if there are specific questions you have, I can try to deal with them.
