How does it work
Each unit introduces an element of English grammar through a picture or series of pictures with speech bubbles or captions. The grammar is then explained in simple language with extra examples if necessary. This is followed by exercises increasing in difficulty from straightforward concept check exercises (e.g. matching tasks) to sentence-writing activities. The units are four pages long and they cover one, two or three grammar points.
Children meet new grammar within everyday contexts they are familiar with, such as family or friends of the same age. This means because they know the vocabulary it makes it much easier to concentrate on the grammar.
Because there is always a clear focus on the specific target grammar the units inGrammar Friendscan be used in any order depending on the syllabus you are following.
Teaching tips, answer keys, and tests in the Teacher’s Book make is much easier to monitor student’s progress.
There are plenty of activities on the Grammar Friends Student Website for home and holiday study so students can enjoyably continue practising English when not in the classroom.
