Living Grammar (Pre-Intermediate)


A three-level series where students learn and practise grammar in everyday contexts.

 Living Grammar takes a practical approach to grammar. The four-page units provide clear explanations and information on when the grammar is used, followed by extensive practice. Each level includes an interactive CD-ROM.

Key features

  • Explanations include a 'Grammar in action' section which explains when the grammar is typically used.
  • Exercises are contextualized so that students practise using the grammar in everyday situations.
  • 'Word focus' boxes highlight interesting idiomatic expressions or words students might not be familiar with.
  • An 'Over to you' task bank at the back of the book offers freer practice, and sample model answers.
  • Modern, upbeat illustrations and exercises that apply grammar to real situations give the series a strong appeal to teenage and adult learners.
  • Elementary and Pre-Intermediate levels help prepare students for the KET exam; Intermediate prepares students for the PET exam.

The CD-ROM at each level includes:

  • Interactive grammar exercises providing extra practice.
  • Links to Word focus exercises.
  • Listening and reading mazes where students choose what happens in a dialogue or story.
  • Opportunity for students to record and listen to themselves participating in the listening mazes.
  • Tests to check progress.
