Brush Up Your Grammar is a grammar textbook designed to ensure students’
success in learning English grammar. The textbook features a clear, easy-tounderstand
format that integrates practice of the rules of essential grammar (form)
with information about when to apply them and what they mean. Form is the structure of
a grammar point and what it looks like. Practice of the form builds students’ accuracy
and helps them recognize the grammar point in authentic situations, so they are better
prepared to understand what they are reading or what other people are saying. Function is
when and how we use a grammar point. Practice of the function builds students fluency
and helps them apply the grammar point in real lives. Abundant practice in both form
and function is a key to students’ success.
Brush Up Your Grammar contains 2 units of varying that proceed through grammar
points from basic to complex. The textbook starts with Modals, which express
ability, probability, obligation and necessity, prohibition, advice, and different degrees of
certainty. The book also includes passive structures with ‘have’ and ‘get’..
For each grammar point Brush Up Your Grammar follows a consistent format
 Each unit starts with a grammar chart where the form of grammar point is
clearly illustrated along with examples for students to clearly see the model.
 The chart also explains the function of grammar point, or how it is used, along
with additional examples.
 It provides exercised to practice the form and function together. Practice
moves logically from more controlled to less controlled. Section Your Turn
requires students to apply the grammar points in communicative activities.
Review provides a set of exercises that brings key grammar points together
and allow for more reinforcement.
Numerous grammar exercises provide intensive work on various grammatical
structures. They can serve both as a means for practicing structures and as a basis for
developing students’ compositional skills. Communicative activities encourage students
to use their grammar knowledge to gain skills, experience, and confidence to
use English outside of class and to continue learning on their own.
The authors hope you will enjoy working with Brush Up Your Grammar and
using the exercises and activities in it. They have confidence that this textbook will
be interesting, innovative and useful for both teachers and students.
