Introduction The Language Skills Series was written to help students learn and consolidate on their understanding of basic English skills. Research has shown that many students lack the skills needed to unlock the written word. The ability to unlock words gives the student a tool to facilitate the learning of the English language. This set of books has been tested extensively and the books have proven to be effective with all age groups, from younger students through to adults. Staff involved with ESL students have also found them useful. The worksheets can be: y used in a one-to-one situation; y used with the whole class;

y used with small groups of students; y sent home to reinforce a skill already learned.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Benefits of the worksheets include: y they are easy to use; y they can be chosen to meet individual needs; y they allow students to work at their own pace; y they can be used to introduce a new concept; y they reinforce a known skill; y they are easy to mark; y the worksheets can be repeated if necessary; y they provide a written record of student knowledge; y they provide practice at answering open-ended questions. Note: Answers, where appropriate, have been provided.

This series endeavours to assist students of all ages and ethnic backgrounds to gain mastery of the English language. I hope you enjoy using the books. Frances Croft
