Each section opens with a lively presentation page which introduces the point of grammar.

Grammar explanations are short, clear and easy to remember. Colour is used to highlight grammatical contrasts. Each grammar explanation is followed immediately by an activity, so that students can practise before moving on to the next explanation. Engaging practice activities include Internet exercises which enable students to see how language is used in real life and personalisation activities which allow students to use the grammar to talk about themselves.

There are 'More practice' pages and a revision test at the end of each section.

OEGC Basic has units at two levels. More basic units are marked 'Level 1'; more advanced units are marked 'Level 2'.

Each unit includes a Teacher's Guide. These lesson-by-lesson guides supplement the Student's Book exercises with hundreds of additional communicative and out-of-class practice activities, to help students make the move from practising grammar to using grammar. They also contain helpful Language Notes showing typical problems students may have with certain structures, often because of cross-language differences.
