These books are very popular among teachers because they provide stripped down explanations of grammar points, presented in a comprehensible way, which can then by relayed to students. In the Oxford English Grammar Course series, Swan, along with Catherine Walter, have combined these kinds of short grammar explanations with the self-study elements of their earlier self-study books such as How English Works to produce a full three-level grammar course for self-study and for classroom use. The books are available at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels, and are designed to guide learners from the reasonably simple grammar of English to its more advanced elements. The books are presented in a comprehensible and clear way. Grammar points are introduced with short explanations in simple English, along with illustrative diagrams where necessary, and exercises are provided in order to assist the learners in mastering the grammar point. The grammar explanations are clear, but sometimes a little pedantic. While this is true and accords with regular native speaker English use, it seems that a less confusing example or one which could be demonstrated to adversely affect comprehension in the person listening to it could have been given instead.
