The Language before Babel

Rudolf Schmid



This is an incredibly fascinating, lively, original, and in many ways, the most memorable English grammar I’ve ever seen. It is also perhaps the best example of the sheer usefulness of employing Rudolf Steiner’s method of understanding things by approaching them as threefold, fourfold, sevenfold, etc. entities. When Schmid applies this to conventional English grammar, the structure of the language springs to life and, because it is placed into relationship with other aspects of human experience, it becomes much easier to grasp and remember and use correctly. Anyone teaching grammar to any class, whether in a school or at home, will find that using this approach opens vistas of understanding – for teacher as well as students. Very highly recommended!

This outstanding workbook is so beautifully conceived, with exercises that are so creative, engaging, and masterful in their ability to teach the basics of English grammar and syntax that I can only imagine parents, teachers and, yes, students cheering as they explore its pages. Accompanied by the information the teacher will bring from The Teacher’s Manual for Three Workbooks, students will discover clear rules for punctuation, parts of speech, and spelling. They will also discover how exciting English can be and some of the many wonderful things one can do with it.
