Usage: A Workbook for Students of English

The beautiful thing about English is the flexibility that allows for such variance between the written and spoken forms, and the informal and formal uses of language. People seem to have no trouble grasping the informal use of their local dialect at a young age and today's informal written English in its most base form texting is about as unstructured as it can be. However, despite this flexibility, there is a time and place for formal language. This workbook will help students learn the rules and exceptions of formal usage, so they can "us[e] English clearly and correctly." If you don't know already, this book will teach you why I had to use the brackets within the quote a skill I just learned myself! As well as teaching the rules of usage, the book has a large section near the end full of "words to watch out for" (such as accept/except, badly/bad, beside/besides and so on). The workbook also includes final review exercises, SAT-style exercises, and an answer key to guided exercises (an answer key for the other exercises is available as the Teacher' Manual). This is an exceptionally clear book that follows a simple structure: rule taught, examples given, exercises to reinforce, then on to the next rule. Students should work through this self-teaching book at the pace that best suits their learning style / ability. The workbook is not consumable per se, but could easily be used that way, if desired, or answers to the exercises could be completed in the separate exercise book. Please see our website for a complete listing of the table of contents. Zach
