A solid foundation ensures a well-constructed building, and careful scaffolding enables perfection during construction. If we apply this analogy to language learning, we see that grammar, with its set of rules and structures, forms that indispensible cornerstone of language learning, and thoughtfully worded examples and explanations provide that perfect scaffolding to young learners to develop their language to perfection.
The Revised Cornerstone: Grammar and Composition Skills for 1—8 is one such series that makes the task of acquiring the basics of grammar an engaging process for young learners. The application of grammar in day-to-day contexts is facilitated through elements such as:
vocabulary pages that strengthen language
conversation practice that builds communication skills
composition tasks that improve writing skills
comprehension passages that test literal, inferential and evaluative understanding
Apart from including a wide range of contextualised exercises and activities that focus on individual practice and encourage collaborative learning, this edition incorporates feedback from user schools across the country. Additional exercises have been provided for further practice and reinforcement, where required. There are graded appendix lists that cover a variety of vocabulary and grammar items.
