Intro & Parts One & Two of Chapter 1 (“Beginnings”) of WorkLife English Grammar 4: Cross-Cultural Communication
Who It’s For: (Teachers & Helpers of) Intermediate Language Learners
Why It’s Useful: Beyond beginning levels, most English grammar instruction begins with elements of and contrasts in the Present Time Frame. This review-at-the-outset” segment gets right to it—in an “International Getting Acquainted” setting.

What You’ll Do:
- (After) Looking at both a photo and a drawing of an international “Meet-Up,” circle correct answers in a “How Much Do You Already Know” selection. Explain your choices. Understand both your correct responses and your mistakes.
- In PART ONE on pages 8-13, work with the instruction on Present-Time Statements. Complete and check the exercises that follow. Do the same with the material on Present-Time Questions in PART TWO on pages 14-18
