This booklet was prepared only as a source of reference for the intermediate levelintensive English courses that had been held annually in the College of Agriculture atAtatürk University between 1978 and 1998. The details, explanations and exercises wereomitted, on purpose, for they were intended to be taken up during the courses.Generally in schools, different parts of certain subjects are taught at different timesin the courses of English as a foreign language. A learner at intermediate level has tointegrate and consolidate these parts in order to establish a solid base for improvement.In this booklet, the essentials of English Grammar are integrated by presenting related partstogether and simplified by sacrificing some details for the sake of practicality. It is intendedto provide a practical guideline for intermediate learners to reach to an advanced level andfor the advanced learners to maintain their level of proficiency in English. This integratedapproach makes it possible for learners to know what they already know and they need toknow.Four basic skills, i.e., reading comprehension, listening comprehension, writtenexpression, and oral expression must be developed in learning a language. These skills are based on Grammar and Vocabulary. A special attention must be given to each one of thesesix basic components of linguistics in learning a foreign language in an efficient way. Thismodest booklet has a limited objective of providing guidance for mainly one of them,namely Grammar. The other components need to be dealt with separately to facilitate asystematic learning.
