In view of the current emphasis on language teaching within the Key Stage 3 Framework, it is vital that teachers overcome any existing lack of confidence and training in grammar and language concepts. Specifically organized around the National Curriculum, this book includes:

  • all the grammar knowledge that a secondary teacher needs
  • numerous grammar activities for use in the classroom
  • contemporary language examples to which new teachers can relate.

By showing how language teaching can be a fun and enjoyable experience, this book offers a refreshing resource for any secondary teacher (at Key Stages 3, 4, and A-level) daunted by the prospect of teaching grammar and language.


'Excellent book! Very helpful for new teachers…' - Pauline Sangster, University of Edinburgh
