How are the books organized?

Each four-page unit presents a manageable amount of new grammar and practice so students are not overwhelmed. It also allows for plenty of practice and consolidation.

New grammar is explained at the beginning of each unit. This explanation shows students HOW it is formed. The Grammar in action section that follows shows students WHEN the grammar is typically used. Students can then be more confident of using the language.

Special Word focus boxes highlight interesting idiomatic expressions or words in the unit students might not be familiar with, this helps enrich their vocabulary.

Over to you is a new type of review which directs learners to a task bank at the back of the book. It allows freer practice and includes some sample model answers.

Can students use Oxford Living Grammar for self-study?
Yes.  Students can either work through the book from beginning to end or select particular grammar points that they feel need more practice.


The Context-Plus+ CD-ROM at each level includes:
  • Interactive grammar exercises providing extra practice.
  • Links to Word focus exercises.
  • Listening and reading mazes where students choose what happens in a dialogue or story.
  • Opportunity for students to record and listen to themselves participating in the listening mazes.
  • Tests to check progress.
