Summary
From the Publisher: Students of English as a second language will value this book as an excellent self-instruction guide, or alternately, as a handy workbook to supplement their formal ESL course. Many ESL teachers will also value this volume as their preferred textbook or textbook supplement. Following a diagnostic pretest, the author guides students through the details of reading, writing, developing vocabulary and grammar, listening, speaking, and correct pronunciation of American style English. She devotes separate chapters to each of the parts of speech, as well as to sentence structure, punctuation, capitalization, word roots, homonyms and synonyms, idioms, rules for academic writing in English, and more. Each chapter contains a list of vocabulary words carefully selected to expand every ESL student's word power in English. The book concludes with a set of comprehensive vocabulary review exercises and a lengthy comprehensive English exam with answers. Students who master these final two chapters can feel confident regarding their command of English
