Barron's Educational Publishing
This book and audio compact disc program instructs students of English as a second language in the elements of grammar, presenting a grammar review that emphasizes speech and correct pronunciation. The compact discs include spoken dictations for each of the bookâ??s ten chapters. Students start by writing out what they hear, and then comparing what they have written with the bookâ??s printed version. In the process, they begin learning the elements of grammar, staring with the simple present tense of the verb â??to beâ? and progressing to all other tenses and parts of speech. Students gradually learn how to use English words and pronounce them properly in grammatically correct sentences. Following each chapterâ??s introductory sentence, they are given a brief story. A short test at the end of each chapter helps them determine their learning progress. The dictations start out quite simple and become progressively more difficult from one chapter to the next. The book is filled with charts and illustrations to facilitate studentsâ?? learning progress.
