Description

Chambers Language Builder is far from a traditional, stuffy school grammar book. Information is presented in manageable, short explanations, backed by examples, activities and fun illustrations all aimed at reinforcing the learning points. The text has been specially compiled and designed with the expert input of teachers of English, and complements the new Key Stage 3/4 programmes of study in England and Wales, the revised Key Stage 3/4 Curriculum in Northern Ireland and National Guidelines in Scotland. As a result, it concentrates on the essentials. It does not muddy the waters with deeper, more complicated theory. Chambers Language Builder not only gives students the tools and terminology they need to convey their critical understanding of texts and how they are crafted, it also encourages both creativity and accuracy with grammatical forms and constructions. It is an indispensable handbook for the secondary curriculum.show more

Review quote

Right in tune with National Curriculum requirements... both students and teachers cannot fail to benefit. Professor Ronald Carter, consultant and developer, Qualifications and Curriculum Authority A modern update on the school grammar text which will prove a valuable addition to anyone studying Key Stage 3 and 4. Publishing News The study of grammar need not be painful, intimidating or dull, as this new book on English grammar clearly shows... The focus throughout is on the English language as it really is, a living and changing entity, and on how students can learn to use it correctly and accurately in order to communicate. There is plenty of sound advice on appropriateness, common errors, standard and non-standard English, language change and punctuation. MED Magazine - Issue 51show more
