Chambers Language Builder is far from a traditional, stuffy school grammar book. Information is presented in manageable, short explanations, backed by examples, activities and fun illustrations all aimed at reinforcing the learning points.The text has been specially compiled and designed with the expert input of teachers of English, and complements the new Key Stage 3/4 programmes of study in England and Wales, the revised Key Stage 3/4 Curriculum in Northern Ireland and National Guidelines in Scotland. As a result, it concentrates on the essentials. It does not muddy the waters with deeper, more complicated theory.Chambers Language Builder not only gives students the tools and terminology they need to convey their critical understanding of texts and how they are crafted, it also encourages both creativity and accuracy with grammatical forms and constructions. It is an indispensable handbook for the secondary curriculum.
