5 Free Books to Improve Your English

Today we post a list of the best free English books that you can simply download and read by yourself.

We put four grammar books and one book about how to improve your memory.

If you are a beginner or advanced level English learner, these books are worth checking out.

1. Longman English Grammar Practice 

This book provides grammar exercises for students working on their own, with an integrated key at the back for reference. The book can be used in any order depending on the personal needs of the students and the exercises are not arranged in order of increasing difficulty, but are marked with asterisks to indicate their relative degree of difficulty.

2. Understanding English Grammar

A practical blend of the most useful elements of both traditional and new linguistic grammar, the text emphasizes whole structures, most specifically the ten basic sentence patterns introduced in Chapter 3. Two key features separate this book from others: its clear organization and its user-friendly, accessible language. Both students and teachers appreciate the self-teaching quality that incremental exercises provide throughout the chapters, with answers at the end of the book.

3. Basic English Syntax with Exercises

The target audience for the book is BA students, covering the introductory syntax level and going through to more advanced BA level material. For this reason, the book starts from the beginning and tries to make as few assumptions as possible about linguistic notions. The first two chapters are a fairly substantial introduction to grammatical concepts both from a descriptive and a theoretical point of view. This material alone, along with the exercises, could form the basis of an introduction to a syntax course. The latter chapters then address specific aspects of the English language and how the concepts and grammatical mechanisms introduced in the first two chapters can be applied to these to enable an understanding of why they are as they are.

4. English Grammar Through Stories 

Learning grammar is easy if you know how! Read these amusing short stories and you will see just what I mean. Your grammar skills will improve almost by themselves!

5. How to Develop a Perfect Memory

In this book, Dominic reveals his system and explains how it can help readers to remember names, faces, telephone numbers, learn languages and pass exams.
