The aim of this book is to build basic skills in reading, comprehension, spelling, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation. The format of each unit is the same so that students become familiar with the requirements of each question, which become progressively more difficult as students work through the book. The sequence of units allows for regular practice that will reinforce the basic English skills taught in school.
