Oxford English Grammar Course – Advanced
Author: Michael Swan and Catherine Walter
Publisher: Oxford University Press
A new three-level grammar course by award-winning authors Michael Swan and Catherine Walter which offers step-by-step presentation and plenty of practice.
Oxford English Grammar Course Basic and Intermediate are revisions and expansions of the highly successful Good Grammar Book and How English Works. The Advanced level is completely new, and includes grammar for reading, writing and speaking. The course will enable advanced level students to benefit from Practical English Usage, 3rd edition.
Oxford English Grammar Course offers students a seamless progression from Basic to Advanced and beyond (if used with Practical English Usage).
Each section opens with a lively presentation page which introduces the point of grammar.
The grammar explanations are short, concise and easy to remember. We’ve also used colour to make the explanation clearer. Each grammar point that students learn is followed by an activity so they can practice before moving on to the next explanation.
If you like lots of extra practice there are ‘More practice pages’ with a revision test at the end of each section. The practice activities are really engaging. Internet exercises encourage students to see how language is used in real life. Do-it-Yourself exercises mean students can use the grammar to talk about themselves.
It is great for mixed ability classes too as Basic and Intermediate have two levels. Some units are marked ‘Revise the Basics’: these revise the elementary points of grammar which may still cause problems and units marked ‘Level 2’ are more advanced.
