Grammar Dimensions: Form, Meaning, Use

Language(s): American English


Through clear and comprehensive grammar explanations, extensive practice exercises, and lively communicative activities, Grammar Dimensions helps students develop the skill of “grammaring”—the ability to use structures accurately, meaningfully, and appropriately.

  • “Opening Tasks” can be used as a diagnostic or warm-up exercise to explore students’ knowledge of each structure’s form, meaning, and use
  • The “Use Your English” pages offer communicative activities that meaningfully apply grammar to reading, writing, listening, and speaking opportunities
  • Workbooks provide additional exercises to improve grammar; also editing activities to increase students’ writing skills, and a test-taking section to enhance students’ application skills
  • Lesson Planners contain step-by-step teaching instructions with a choice of lesson plans to suit the unique needs of individual teachers and learners.
