Oxford Practice Grammar Basic is divided into units, each of which covers an important grammar topic. Each new topic is presented on a left-hand page and the practice section follows on the same page or the facing page. This makes it easy to use because you can look across to the explanation while you are doing the exercises.

It's a really flexible course too - you can either start at the beginning and work through to the end or choose the order in which you want to study the grammar topics - perhaps starting with those that are giving you problems.

To find out which areas you might need to study most you can take an online diagnostic test at www.oup.com/elt/practicegrammar

Tests at the end of each unit or section mean you can see how much you have learned and decide if you need more practice. If you do there are further interactive activities on the Practice-Boost CD-ROM to support every unit.  

When you've finished the book you can try the exit test so you know you are ready for Oxford Practice Grammar Intermediate


Each Practice-Boost CD-ROM has a unique code that gives learners access to the following FREE tests at www.oxfordenglishtesting.com - Oxford's new interactive online practice tests website.

Intermediate - FREE FCE Exam Practice Test
