Welcome to REA’s ESL Grammar Premium Edition

A Smart Way to Build Your English Grammar Skills!

Open a world of opportunity by mastering the English language. ESL Grammar: Intermediate and Advanced Premium Edition with e-Flashcards is perfect for intermediate and advanced high school and college-level non-native speakers of English who need to improve their English grammar skills.

The ability to write and speak English effectively is necessary for success in any area, whether it be high school, college, at work, or in everyday life. English grammar, writing, and speaking skills are a must when applying for a job or advancing in your chosen career. Employers (and their clients) often judge employees according to their ability to communicate precisely and productively.

This book—as well as REA’s companion volume, ESL Writing: Intermediate and Advanced—will help you take command of the English language and express yourself in any situation. This easy-to-use workbook covers must-know concepts and contains handy tables that address five key areas of English grammar: articles, vocabulary, plurals, prepositions, and irregular verbs.

Each section contains skill-building exercises and examples that let you practice what you have learned. A glossary of the basic parts of speech, plus lists of frequently used words are included for easy reference.

This book is an ideal supplement to textbooks and language courses, and serves as the perfect ESL workbook for anyone studying for an English language test, such as the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or the PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English). The book builds upon your knowledge of English grammar as you “graduate” from the Intermediate section of the book to the Advanced section.

Whether you’re studying English in a class or on your own, this fun and friendly workbook will help you build your skills and communicate with precision … and success.

e-Flashcards: Build Your Word Power
REA’s flashcard app helps improve your vocabulary. Study the 250 vocabulary flashcards included when you buy this book (words seen on the TOEFL - Test of English as a Foreign Language).
