What It Is: The WLE Level 5 Competency Based Grammar is a 215-page student text designed to produce proficiency in the use of "higher-level" sentence structures and grammar rules. Like the corresponding Listening/ Speaking and Reading/Writing books, it's subtitled “Language & Culture in Depth.” Its ten (10) Chapter titles are:
• Meeting People • Getting an Education • Money, Money, Money • Earning a Living • Getting Help • Going Places • Getting Along with People • Having Fun • The Media • A Lifetime of Learning
Why You Need It: Advancing language learners can benefit from an in-depth course in those areas they haven't yet mastered in oral and written production. They're ready for comprehensive review and expansion of most of the structures used by educated speakers and writers of the language.

What It Does: The text organizes the grammar topics that native and advanced second-language speakers need in their work and lives. More than half its material focuses on verb forms and tenses. The rest helps with the other major parts of speech: nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs. At the end, the passive and various kinds of clauses are introduced and practiced.
The text begins with a summary of Grammatical Terms & Concepts focusing on recognition of Parts of Speech and Verb Forms & Tenses. It suggests grammar correction as a language-improvement technique.
Parts One, Two, and Three of each of ten chapters begins with the discourse of a sympathetic main character who makes many grammatical mistakes. As a Pretest, text users attempt to rewrite his story by correcting these. Referring to boxed examples and grammar explanations, they practice those points in various kinds of exercises that progress from controlled to open-ended and expressive. Finally, they assess their acquisition of the relevant grammar be re-considering the original text.
Part Four reviews, integrates, and summarizes the structures and rules of each chapter. It ends with "Beyond the Text" activities that prove that text users have succeeded in improving their English.
Appendix A in the student text gives the correct versions of all its stories.
