Alston’s Grammar Usage uses the concept-to-context approach of learning English for young learners. Language and grammar rules are presented to the learner gradually through examples and practices in the book, starting from the introduction of a concept through examples and later progressing to practices in various formats. All these are designed to help the learner acquire language and grammar skills progressively and systematically.
Attractive and colourful pictures and illustrations accompany grammar points, examples and practices to facilitate a better understanding and clarify of these activities. The concepts are grouped into learning sections of:
– language units, where on concept is presented in one unit;
– a review of the units in the form of practice; and
– a set of worksheets, one for each unit.
