The third volume in the four-volume, theme-basedGrammar Linksseries combines a traditional focus on form with a communicative approach to help intermediate level students link grammar to the real world in written and spoken formats. The text offers comprehensive grammar coverage, a strong emphasis on the pragmatics of formal versus informal language, and an abundance of contexualized, four-skills (reading, writing, speaking, and listening) practice that helps students develop fluency as they master form. Varied exercises, icons, and the use of inductive and discovery techniques contribute to making this a complete grammar text that can be used alone or as part of the series. The design of the text allows instructors to present units in the order needed to fit a particular curriculum. AGrammar Briefingbegins each chapter and is followed by systematic practice of all the grammar points introduced, going from more controlled to less controlled, from easier to more difficult, and often from more receptive to more productive and/or more structured to more communicative. Streamlined, easy-to-read grammar charts highlight structures and serve as reference points students can revisit throughout the course and for exam preparation. Instructor and Student Web Sites offer a full array of support materials ranging from Instructor Resource Manuals and sample syllabi to unit tests and vocabulary flash cards. Unit Wrap-Upstie the unit grammar together with a series of activitiesincluding reading, writing, editing, and listening/speaking activities. Through this series of open-ended tasks, which build on lessons in the individual chapters, students get communicative practice in all skills and across several chapters.
