English Fundamentals, Form A
Longman Publishing Group, 2003 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 430 pages
This book offers comprehensive grammar instruction with ample opportunities for practice. The first lessons introduce students to the basic system of the language and provide carefully chosen examples of verb connections, basic sentence patterns, and the internal workings of the sentence. Once the foundation is laid, subsequent lessons explore the more complex structures and relationships of the language. The final instructional section surveys college writing; students study the writing process, with special emphasis on techniques of invention, and then learn to apply the process to a wide range of writing assignments typical of college courses. The section closes with coverage of essay tests and test-taking. For anyone interested in improving their knowledge of English grammar.
