Introduction

First of all, congratulations on wanting to improve your English! You are on the way to becoming more fluent with the use of Grammar Launch Intermediate 1 and the Grammar Launch MP3s.

This book is written to be as concise as possible so that learning is made easier. Grammar is briefly explained, then there are lots of examples in use, so that you can learn through real, natural English. The point of the grammar explanation is to get a basic understanding of each structure. The main learning takes place with the example sentences and the Grammar Launch MP3s.

All the examples in this book are natural ways of using each grammar structure. You won’t find ridiculous examples like you see in some textbooks such as look at that monkey dancing or please hold this gun while I bend down to tie my shoelace.

There are more than 450 natural, native-like example sentences to read and listen to. The reason for so many examples is because each time you see or hear the grammar in a new way, your brain understands even more deeply, and so the new language will easily stick.

All the forms that are studied are in bold so that it is easier to notice what you are learning in each unit.

All the Grammar Launch MP3s are available on the download page: www.SirEnglish.com/GrammarLaunch

Let’s get started with launching your grammar and your English to the next level!

The steps to launch your English to the next level

1. Read the explanation so you understand the main meaning and use of the grammar structure.

2. Read the example sentences a few times so that you understand each grammar structure more deeply. Learning with these short, focused examples is an excellent way to train your brain and ingrain the new grammar.

3. After you have read the sentences, download the Grammar Launch MP3 files.

4. Listen to the MP3 for the grammar structure you learned. The audio will allow you to absorb the new English quickly and easily.

5. Listen many, many times so that the English sticks in your brain. You can put the MP3s onto your smartphone and listen anywhere you go: on the bus, on the train, while walking, while in the gym etc. Get into the habit of listening to each MP3 many times and you will see huge, rapid improvements in your English.

6. Practice speaking aloud by listening to each sentence and then pausing the audio as you repeat after me. This will further ingrain the new grammar into your mind.

7. When you have completed one unit, move onto the next grammar structure in this book, download the MP3 and follow the steps above again.

8. Keep listening and reading all the grammar structures once you have finished the book. Keep refreshing them until you become natural and fluent in each area.

Had better (you had better do, she had better do etc.)

Meaning

Look at this example:

Your sickness is getting worse. We had better go to the doctor today.

The words in bold indicate that we should strongly do something. Had better means that you should do something. If you don’t do this thing, there will be a problem or danger in the future.

Structure

The structure for had better is:

Had better + basic verb (walk, see, visit, go etc.)

For example:

We had better leave now, otherwise we will be late.

The negative structure is:

Had better + not + basic verb

For example:

You had better not be late for work. There is an important meeting today.

The question structure is:

Hadn’t + I/he/she/it/we/you/they + better + basic verb

For example:

Hadn’t we better drive? It’s quite far to walk.

Things to note

1. Had better is usually contracted in spoken English to I’d better, you’d better, she’d better etc.

2. Had better is similar to should, but not exactly the same. Use had better for saying this is a good thing to do now and use should to say this is a good thing to do in general:

It’s going to rain soon. We had better take an umbrella. (A good thing to do now)

When it rains, you should always take an umbrella. (A good thing to do in general)

3. Had better is always used to talk about the present or the future:

Come on, we’d better go now or else we’ll be late. (Present)

We haven’t seen my parents for months. We’d better visit them tomorrow. (Future)

4. We often use or, or else, or otherwise to say what will happen if we don’t follow the advice:

You had better stop eating junk food every day, or/or else/otherwise you will get fat.

Detailed examples in use

I have an important meeting in 20 minutes. I’d better hurry, otherwise I’ll be in trouble with the boss. = I should be quick and get to the meeting on time. If I don’t there could be a
