. Step-by-step instruction takes students from the most basic concepts through advanced grammatical concepts.
. Extensive diagramming exercises reinforce the rules and help technical and visual learners to understand and use the English language effectively. Each step of the diagramming process is illustrated and thoroughly explained to the student.
. Text for examples and exercises is drawn from actual published works, from English literature classics to modern masters. Learn your grammar from the greats!
. Regular review is built into each year of work.
. The third of four non-sequential workbooks, each containing new exercises that allow students to practise and apply the grammar principles under study.
Along with the accompanying Key and the Core Instructor Text, Blue Workbook makes up a full year of grammar study.
