Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar


Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar

This book is intended for anyone who needs to build up their skills, understanding or confidence in spelling, punctuation or grammar. If you buy a multi-user licence you can share the book with colleagues in your school, college or organisation to use with the students they teach within that institution. 

Aimed particularly at students who are studying subjects on which they may be examined, a student working towards a GCSE will find the material relevant and accessible, but any of the topics could prove useful to more advanced learners up to A level and even degree level too. The book can also be used for learners in the workplace where skills in spelling, punctuation and grammar are equally important for reports and other written communication. The topics assume a broad, basic grasp of the English language.

NEC produced this resource because it wanted to see its own students achieve the best possible results from their studies. The topics have been written with the same care which NEC pays to all its subject-based resources, in a way that can effectively develop skills, understanding and confidence, and provide a valuable resource that can help to save time for tutors and trainers looking to develop their students’ spelling, punctuation and grammar skills. Use the entire contents of the workbook or only the topics you need, for face-to-face teaching with your students, or as revision support or a home study aid. 

A single-user download allows you to use the material in your own teaching only. Read the full Licensing Terms & Conditions here.
