    verbs of motion

    Hi everyone,

    Just getting stuck into the lovely world of verbs of motion. As you've probably guessed the subjects driving me potty.

    Is there a good textbook i could get purely about verbs of motion. I'd feel so much better if i could just get to grips with it.

    Thanks

    Joe

    Verbs of motion are an idea from the Devil himself. I don't know about any books that might help you, but I do wish you all the luck in the world trying to understand how they work. You'll need it...
