Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A classic developmental skills text for lower-intermediate and intermediate English language learners, Fundamentals of English Grammar is a comprehensive reference grammar as well as a stimulating and teachable classroom text.

 

While keeping the same basic approach and material as in earlier editions, the fourth edition more fully develops communicative and interactive language-learning activities. Some of the new features are:

  • Innovative Warm-Up exercises that precede the grammar charts and introduce points to be taught
  • Structure-based listening exercises ranging from casual speech to more academic content
  • A wide selection of readings that highlight the target grammar structures
  • Greatly expanded speaking practice with extensive pair, group, and class work
  • Writing activities with models for students to follow
  • Corpus-informed syllabus that reflects the discourse patterns of spoken and written English
  • Audio CDs and Listening Script in the back of the Student Book
