CHAPTER 1 enables students to confidently identify the parts of speech in order to avoid common grammatical errors. (Different types of nouns, pronouns and verbs; the difference between adverbs and adjectives as well as prepositions and conjunctions.)
CHAPTER 2 helps students distinguish between different types of phrases and clauses, sentence types and sentence structures. They will learn to identify subject-object and verb-object constructions and the link between clauses and types of conjunctions.
CHAPTER 3 builds upon the knowledge of phrases and clauses to outline the rules relating to punctuation. It covers the differences between a comma, semicolon and colon; focuses on the use of apostrophes and speech marks and encourages students to quote correctly and use embedded clauses for stylistic purposes.
