How can the workbook help my students and me?
Every lesson contains:
- Exercises (including hands-on practice)
- Homework units
The rules are written crystal clear so that nor the teacher nor the students have any questions left.
The exercises practice the rules and develop the skills.
The hands-on practice makes the students actually USE what they have just learned. By "use," we don’t just mean “write assignments.” We mean real usage in speech, listening, etc.
The stories provide context and further practice. They help make the lessons lighter and more fun.
The homework units give you, the teacher, a handy tool. At the end of the lesson you can give the homework sheets so that the students practice on their own before your next lesson. That way they become more knowledgeable and skilled, with no extra effort from you in preparing homework assignments.
