English Grammar 101 - Foreword

The author, Marvin Van Horne, originally created this instructional series from his love of language and the real world needs of his students. Once created, he quickly realized the series could not only benefit his students but anyone interested in improving his or her knowledge of the English language. Over his thirty-six year career, Marvin developed a teaching method that allowed students to learn language concepts and experience the language at the same time. Using this method, students were encouraged to repeat each lesson as many times as necessary until they scored 80% or better.
