I have been using Jensen’s Grammar for quite a few years now. I love it, and I see how well my children write and communicate because of this program.

I have Jensen’s Grammar Part 1, Part 2, & Part 3 – Copyright 1992. This is a WONDERFUL Grammar series. I would like to use this again with 3 more children and 2 adults. However, I have not been able to find all three parts. Is this series still available? Or maybe the combined is all three parts? (Yes, it is now called Jensen’s Grammar. ed.) Thanks for such an incredibly clear, concise, and complete grammar series. I love it, and I earnestly hope it is still available.

I don’t want any of the kids leaving home without having Jensen’s Grammar under their belt. It has served us well.
Joan Mahan – home educator
We have used Jensen’s Grammar and feel it is an excellent addition to our homeschool curriculum. Thank you very much.
Sue Spencer – home educator
I have found your curriculum to be extremely helpful to our homeschooling. I appreciate the structured, no nonsense approach. One of my children is deaf, which makes grammar and writing a challenge. I have found that your method of formula writing really helps her to write understandable, complete sentences. Thanks again for the great teaching tools.

My daughter has said that your English course has helped her understand grammar more than anything we have done. I’ve also noticed her sentences are improving by using the formulas you provide at the end of each lesson.

I purchased your vocabulary book a few years ago, and we loved it. My son later took the SAT after using all of your books (except the punctuation book) and he scored very high (1360), and he received enough scholarships to almost completely pay for college. That is a tough thing to do because homeschoolers do not have a class rank and are not even considered for many scholarships. I am grateful for your help.

I am writing you to personally thank you for writing Jensen’s Grammar. I often refer to this as being the most influential study throughout my college preparatory education. Never had I seen grammar so mathematically structured. Sentences were broken down into independent clauses with simple rules like “I;I.” “I,cc I.” To this day, I still recall them: “independent clause, semicolon, independent clause” and “independent clause, comma, coordinating conjunction, independent clause.” I’ve not had problems structuring sentences since. Punctuation became a strong point for me as I could revert to what I viewed as mathematical equations. My mind works in precise, structured, step-by-step, processes. You broke down the English language into an organized, intuitive set of rules, which were easy to remember and apply. Today, I continue to benefit from your literature. Recently, I’ve purchased a copy of Jensen’s Grammar to brush up on the basics, and in doing so, read through some of the articles on your website. I particularly liked the section titled “Grammar and Thought” in which you briefly discussed the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis. I loved one of your concluding statements – so much, in fact, that I wrote it down in my book of quotes. You said, “With greater understanding comes greater facility.” Amen, friend. I have a desire to know – a desire to understand. Often I’ll discuss this idea with my friends, and I typically conclude that “Hey, I just have a desire to know and a desire to do.” You phrased this so much better. I mean, that’s it, Mr. Jensen; that’s the application. Again, thank you for the time and effort you’ve invested in these works. In my opinion, they are all one needs in order to develop the necessary skills involved with written communication. God bless you and your ministry.

I am 16 years old and am home schooled. I am currently going through Jensen’s Grammar and while checking my answers for Exercise 24, I noticed that some of the answers for two of the problems didn’t match the problems. In problems 24 and 25, I was supposed to divide the two sentences into subject and predicate and find the prepositional phrases. In problem 24, the answer for the subject/predicate part was “he//had”, when the word “had” wasn’t even in the problem. For problem 25, the answer was “he//thought”, neither of which are in the problem. (Those problems have since been fixed. ed) Otherwise, your book has been very good and has helped me immensely with my grammar, and I’m not even halfway through it. Things are a lot clearer now whereas they used to be dreadfully fuzzy or nonexistent. Thank you very much.

My 14 year old had previously worked through your Jensen’s Grammar book. She has spent this year at public school. We attended her prize-giving ceremony today where she received the top academic award for her year, along with the award for English. We both feel that Jensen’s Grammar contributed to her success.

Hi, I have a Jensen’s Grammar book that I am using with the last of my three kids. This is the best grammar resource ever.
Joy Toll – home educator
I can’t wait to do grammar this year. I have ten 11-year-old boys in class. We’re going to do this thing! Thanks for your hard work in developing this program. So many people tell me I should try this or that program, but I know that I already have the best. It is hard, but done correctly the results are phenomenal! My daughter is in college right now. She doesn’t think she is a particularly good writer with anything to say, but she usually gets an “A” anyway because she has such good form. She comes home and thanks me for teaching her how to write, so I pass the thanks on to you. You’re changing lives. Thank you.
