Introduction This book is designed to revise and consolidate grammar points at the level of Council of Europe Framework (CEF)Bl and B2. It assumes that some basic points have been covered. These can be practised in Macmillan English Grammar In Context Essential. The practice material includes a wide range of topics to reflect both everyday language use and the kinds of subjects learners might be studying in schools or colleges. Many learners are likely to use English to learn another subject during their education and the choice of text tries to reflect this factoSome texts contain information which learners should fmd interesting or challenging. The intention in general is that language should have a familiar context and that learners should have something to use language for. Within each unit, exercises range in difficulty. This allows learners to build up their confidence with the simpler, more familiar tasks before moving onto the more challenging ones later in the unit. The longer, topic-based texts include highlighted words whose definitions can be found on the accompanying CD-ROM.This is a good opportunity for learners to widen their vocabulary and see grammar used in realistic contexts. The Review section at the back of the book offers more activities for students who have finished the other exercises. It is also for students who feel that they haven't fully grasped the grammar point and need some further practice. In addition, it can be used as a means of testing or revising previous study, either in class or at home. The CD-ROM
This includes two further exercises for each unit in this book, and a test section. Plus, where you see highlighted words like this, you will find the definitions in the glossary section. Just follow the link from the homepage. To the student
Macmillan English Grammar In Context has been written to make grammar more
interesting than other books on the market. We hope you find it enjoyable as well as useful. If you are studying at home, the units can be covered in any order but the exercises within each unit have been graded. If you find some exercises difficult, read the presentation page again. The extension activities and Review offer the opportunity of further practice. To the teacher
Unlike many other grammar books, Macmillan English Grammar In Context puts grammar into context. The aim is to encourage student s to see grammar used more realistically and in more interesting ways. The topics covered in the exercises can be used as a starting point for a lesson, as a subject for discussion, and as a means of helping to build students' vocabulary in useful areas. There is opportunity for individual study, group work and homework, plus testing, in the different sections of the book.
