Product Description


ESOL Practice Grammar: Supplementary Grammar Support for ESOL Students: Entry Level 3

This book has been designed for adult students studying ESOL at schools and colleges in the United Kingdom. It is also ideal for students who are interested in learning grammar in the context of UK culture.

The material takes the key grammatical structures at Entry Level 3 from the Adult ESOL core curriculum as its basis. It also recycles aspects of the Entry Level 2 curriculum.

The rationale underlying the book is to make grammar accessible, relevant and memorable. A simple and attractive design has been used to reinforce these three aspects of the book.

Key features of the course include:

  • 26 units matching the ESOL curriculum;
  • accessible explanations;
  • attractive two-colour format;
  • graded practice activities;
  • focus on language patterns;
  • contextualized language;
  • communicative interaction and genuine language development;
  • accommodation of student differentiation;
  • for class study, self-study, or for home reference;
  • includes full answer key.
