Essentials of Georgian Grammar is a student-tested basic grammar book for
both beginner and intermediate level students. The book is organized as a
50-lesson course, each lesson designed for a 3-hour per-week study. Each
lesson is structured in a way that makes it easy for a student to gradually
advance from simpler to more complex material. Students who already have
some familiarity with the Georgian language will find it helpful to
practice the beginning lessons and then follow the order of the book
chapters starting from the new material. The book can be used for the
classroom instruction or for self-study. The structure of the book is
useful for teachers as well as for individual students since it has been
classroom-tested for several years. The book covers all the essentials of
Georgian grammar. Teachers can simply follow the order and use their own
additional exercises or materials as needed.

The explanations of grammatical rules are maximally simple and short.
Therefore, anyone who knows elementary grammatical terminology should be
able to understand it. The book contains useful exercises, thematic
vocabularies, and reading texts. In the Appendix of the book, there are
conjugation tables of 250 most commonly used Georgian verbs. This is the
first time these types of tables have been introduced in a Georgian grammar
course, making it very easy for the student to learn the major tense
formation rules in Georgian. This model proved to be the most effective way
to learn the conjugation patterns of the Georgian verb. After completing
the course, the student will be able to read, write, and speak in Georgian.
The book provides the basic background and gives the student an opportunity
to pursue advanced studies in the Georgian language.
