About this book
A comprehensive self-contained course which helps students with a basic knowledge of English develop their ability to communicate in everyday situations. It follows the basic pattern of the other first stage Master language books. Each chapter begins with dialogues based on situations encountered by a visitor to Britain. Explanations of useful expressions, vocabulary and grammar are followed by relevant background information about life in England. This is in the form of simple texts which provide reading material. There are exercises which practice and develop the main structures and grammar points and a short writing task at the end of each chapter. Students can check their answers by referring to the key in the reference section. This also contains a guide to pronunciation and a summary of the grammar introduced throughout the book. There are lists of useful words as well as a short bibliography. The course is accompanied by a cassette.
