I. The Innovative Grammar book
This is an innovative grammar-reading-writing-thinking book that transforms the study of grammar from a chore into an empowering, colorful, and joyful experience.
The book argues that grammar is both enjoyable and important, that it is, in fact, the very essence of language.
I originally wrote the book for English Majors, Creative Writing Majors, and English teachers. I have found that it's also interesting for anyone who needs to write for a living and for anyone else who loves language and wants to think about how language works.
The book is available as a paperback and as a fixed layout e-book. You can buy both versions directly through Balboa Press.
You can look inside the book online at Amazon HERE.
If you live in Aachen, you can also browse through the book and buy it locally at Buchhandlung Backhaus.

II. Frid's Fun Inventory of the Sounds of English
(Standard BrE & Standard NAmE)
This colorful and enjoyable book offers the slides I use when I first initiate my new students into the joys of studying and practicing the art and craft of pronunciation. Regardless of whether you are a student or a teacher of English, you will love having this beautiful, effective, and versatile tool.
This e-book comes with a video and an audio, in which I pronounce all the words for you, as well as with a set of e-posters that you can print out for your own use. I recommend having them printed on 300 weight paper in a Din A 4 (or a comparable) format as a reference tool that you can keep on your desk. If you are a teacher, have them printed as posters for your classroom wall.
I have also added the pdf version of a powerpoint presentation on the places and manners of articulation of English sounds.
(If you are a speaker of German, you might enjoy the pronunciation crash course that I offer along with this book. You can find info about that course HERE.
