What It Is: The WLE Level 2 Competency Based Grammar is a 170-page student text designed to improve learners' use of sentence structure, phrasing, and grammar. As in the corresponding Listening/Speaking and Reading/ Writing books about “English in Everyday Life,” its ten (10) Chapter titles are:
Why You Need It: Few language learners are satisfied with primitive communication in single words or phrases. They want to put sentences together--and are even happier when these turn out not only "correct" but also effective in expressing what they want to say or write. That's what context-based grammar practice is all about--especially when its "contexts" are practical everyday situations.
What It Does: Organized around grammar principles and patterns, the book provides vital competency material in its reading matter, exercises, and practical activities. In a grammar-based program, it provides the core material. In language-skills instruction, it can serve as a supplement for its corresponding reading/writing and listening/speaking texts.
