Some content is not needed to be included in this book. Here are examples:
-On page (99), “seldom” is old-fashioned adverb of frequency.
-The Present Perfect Tense is not advised to be taught to beginners. Furthermore, we must bear in mind that this tense is gradually being replaced by Simple Past Tense.
-On page (74), the there is a wrong linguistic term used in the title. This title must be :” How to Make Interrogative Sentence”, and not “ How to Make Information Sentence.”
-The interrogative pronoun, whom, can be introduced for advanced level learners, but not for beginners level learners. We have to take into consideration that “whom” gradually discontinues to be used.
