More English Basics Third Edition

By | Copyright Year:2017 | ISBN-13: 9780170381352

More English Basics is a complete workbook for independent study by students wishing to improve their understanding of basic English language skills. The exercises have been classroom-trialled with significant improvements between pre-test results and final test results. This workbook has been designed to follow on from English Basics with the emphasis on preparation for the demands of English in the senior school. It is an invaluable and effective tool for students, teachers and parents because the teaching notes are clear, the exercises graduates, and there is constant revision.

In addition, for the first time, a digital format has been built and tested by students for students to offer an alternative learning style. For students who prefer an interactive digital-only version, please contact your local education consultant and refer to ISBN number 9780170381406
