Fundamentals of English Grammar (Other)

Betty S Azar; Stacy A Hagen

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
