Hi there
Could someone please explain to me when you're supposed to use "です" and when you're supposed to use "います"

If you can find the funds, get yourself a proper textbook and the associated workbooks and/or audio-visual materials that may be available for it.

You get what you pay for and TK is worth every penny he charges for it.
In that case, could you please recommend me a good grammar book. There'd a lot of different ones, so I simply can't decide which one to buy

The Genki series is widely used and frequently recommended.

If you don't want to expend the money though, check the japanese from zero video series in YouTube, that's a progressive way to learn Japanese topic by topic. You will end purchasing books but for the moment you may start there.
