Replete with challenging exercises, puzzles, and lively, whimsical graphics, this workbook employs a sequential construction theme to steadily and comfortably advance students from basic levels of language competence to higher and higher levels of expertise. Grammatical and linguistic skills are developed and reinforced in a gradual, step-by-step fashion using meticulous explanations and examples.
