Each chapter opens with a Grammar in Discourse section showing the target grammar in an authentic reading context.

The Form sections present the target grammar with clear, concise explanations that students can understand. They also encourage students to use their critical thinking abilities to use English outside of the classroom and to continue learning English on their own.

Special sections throughout the chapters cover pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary, the differences between written and spoken language, and grammar beyond the sentence.

The Writing Section guides students through the process of applying grammatical knowledge to compositions.

Part Tests at the end of every section allow ongoing assessment and evaluation of the students’ progress
