Each page is focused on a single point of English grammar, from very basic matters such as subject-verb agreement with "to be," to complexities such as real and unreal conditional and reported speech.
There are three main types of exercises: * question and answer, * fill in the blank, and * pairwork. Many of the exercises are to be used in-class, but many may be assigned as homework.
On each handout, there is minimal explanation of grammatical structures and rules because, as the title suggests, the point is practice. As a practice book, it offers page upon page of focused work on developing the fifth skill, "grammaring." *
The 195 exercises are too numerous to list, but they are grouped in the following categories:
* Basic Morphology, Phrase Structure, and Word Order * To Be
* Diane Larsen-Freeman (2004), Teaching Language from Grammar to Grammaring. Boston: Heinle ELT Cengage Learning.
An Answer Key
for all of the grammar activities is now printed in the back of the
