Clear, communicative, and teachable, this four-level series enlivens the world of grammar like never before! Each book shimmers with an abundance of controlled and communicative practice in a unique four-step approach following contextualization, presentation, guided practice, and communicative practice. The student books serve as a valuable self-study resource?providing grammar charts, notes, expansive appendices, and easy-to-follow exercises! Underpinning the scope of the series as a whole is the constant recycling of structures, plus self-tests at each unit's end and helpful appendices with lists such as irregular verbs. The answers to the self-tests are included in each student book; all other answers are available in an answer key booklet. The accompanying workbooks feature a wealth of relevant writing exercises in an easy assignment format for each unit's target grammar. A symbol throughout the student book indicates the material on the cassette/CD?all of the dialogues are included. The teacher's guides have the complete script, practical teaching suggestions, cultural information, and ready-to-use diagnostic and final tests for each unit. There's also a companion website with task-based web exercises. Using this series will make focusing on grammar mean focusing on fun!
