Here's a very approachable textbook for both children and adults who speak English as their second language. It acquaints students with correct English sentence construction, parts of speech, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling, and offers extra tips on how to expand one's English-language vocabulary. After laying out these fundamentals, the authors proceed with solid instruction on writing a paragraph in English, and then with instruction on writing a multi-paragraph story. Advice includes choosing a topic to write about, sketching out a rough draft, and finally revising and editing the finished piece. Students once daunted by what they perceived as the intricacies of English will be attracted by the authors' student-friendly approach to proficiency.
