The use of the American flag theme on the grammar books covers is to enhance recognition and promotion of American English in language study. The grammar approach is not a temporary design, and flags have been in use for grammar courses in many languages.

  • Travelers in Grammar parts 1-4

Beginner to the Upper Intermediate level, the language scope is indispensable to live, work,
and move about in English speaking countries without the hindrances of language deficit.

  • The Proficient Traveler in Grammar

  • Travel in Grammar: the Whole Journey

It is the actual ability to comprehend as well as produce written or spoken language independently and according with standards of grammatical correctness.
