"A great book to have in any staff room and a useful resource to liven up grammar lessons." Ryan Horsnail, International House, Barcelona, Spain "Excellent - especially for summer school courses. Both book were extensively used again this year." Harrow School, UK "This book providing photocopiable material does just what its title promises. It gets teacher and students going with grammar. First of all teachers have to assess the wealth of material provided and decide whether it can be just copied out, maybe laminated and used straightaway for their own students, or whether they need to produce an adapted version with the help of the many templates provided for the large variety of games assembled. Then students will get busy practising all kinds of grammar points in an enjoyable way. In fact, even traditional games, such as snakes and ladders or some types of races appeal to learners of various levels. Doing the tasks designed to practise certain structures at the same time gets students' imaginations flowing. For example, the questions in a race called 'Model Modals' might provoke discussions (e.g., What should a son do for his father? What might stop you from achieving your goals? What could you do to have more money?) and the picture cards for comparisons will make you look at objects and animals in a new way (Can you, for example, compare a mobile phone to a giraffe?!). The book contains 25 different games dealing with many tricky grammar points such as tag questions, verb tenses, parts of speech, conditionals, etc. and is therefore suitable for various learner levels. The teacher's notes, as well as the rules written for the students, provide clear instructions whereas the built-in adaptability component helps the teacher and even the students create their own versions. So I would strongly recommend you to 'Get going ...!'" Elsbeth Mader for the ETAS Journal, Vol. 24, No 2, Spring 2007 "Short on time? Looking for a fun way to pre-view or review a specific grammar point with your pre-intermediate class? Get Going with Grammar is a well organised compilation of 25 grammar games dealing with specific grammar points from countable / uncountable nouns to the present perfect. Meldrum and Reimer have merged classic games like checkers and dominoes with grammar points, creating a friendly, competitive atmosphere in your classroom... This book is ideal for ESL teachers who want to minimise teacher planning time and maximise student interaction time. I'm looking forward to trying out even more games!" Katharina Gale for IATEFL Voices, Issue 229, November / December 2012
