Present day english, book 3
This book completes the Present Day English Course, a series designed for teachers who are looking for class books that will ease their task of lesson planning and enable their students to make rapid progress in understanding, speaking, reading and writing everyday English.
Book Three continúes the general plan developed in Books One and Two. Each Lesson begins with a reading passage dealing with the daily lives of the Brown family and their friends. A piece of conversation follows, so that similar material is treated colloquially and more formally in the same lesson, and there are comprehension questions covering both passages. Next come sentence-pattem drills illustrating points of grammar and usage, introduced by rather fuller explanatory notes than those in the earlier books, together with a list of new words and idioms and a plentiful collection of exercises based on the material of that and earlier Lessons. The composition exercises at the end of each Lesson are introduced by notes on the different kinds of written composition which the student needs to master either for his own use or in order to pass examinations.
The vocabulary includes (with a very few exceptions) the remaining 800 words of the 2,000 General Service List of English Words not already covered in Books One and Two, together with an additional 150 words required by the subject-matter of the reading passages. Phonetic transcripts are given for all new words and idioms after each Lesson and again in the general vocabulary at the end, where the Spanish equiv-alents are added. There is a list of the structures and teaching items exemplified in the sentence patterns. A reference index
