  • DESCRIPTION

    Provides an introduction to the basic principles of the English language for 9–11 year-olds. Also suitable as a revision book for older children.

  • Contents
  • FEATURES
    • English Basics covers the ‘mechanics’ of the English language: spelling, punctuation and grammar. Each book offers a systematic work and study programme for use in the classroom or at home.

    • Each unit consists of three sections. Initial tasks enable students to assess their grasp of a particular language point; a reference section contains accessible explanations and plenty of examples; and further exercises offer extension, revision and consolidation. A full glossary and answer key are also included.
