Who It’s For: (Self) Teachers & Helpers at Advancing Learning Levels      

Why It’s Useful: One way to review or acquire new patterns is one Contextualized Grammar Point at a time. Within the overall context of “Education,” this ten-part chapter covers ten “subtopics of modal verbs” (such as Simple Modals of Ability, Continuous & Perfect Modal Forms, or Modals of Deduction), each in a different (matching) sub-context (like “School Rights” or “Missed Opportunities,” or “Student Financial Aid.” The ten one– or two-page Lessons can be approached in any order.
