I do like the functional approach of the grammar book, but the workbook needs some serious re-thinking. Jubb's book provides excellent cross-references to several grammars, not just Jubb's own, prepares you for the exercises with various advance organisers, and provides a useful timetable to work to. Applying Jubb's approach to the functional dimension of this workbook would improve the book enormously and make it far more useful. As it is I'm considering giving up on this workbook - it's too confusing - and continuing with the Using... series published by Cambridge.
Whilst working on the exercises for relative pronouns, I noticed the harder ones came first - I personally think it is better to have the easier ones first, as this allows the student to get to grips with the basics and build up their confidence before tackling the trickier exercises.
I would have also prefered it if more of the workbook had been dedicated to grammar exercises - after all, it's pointless in doing the exercises in Section B (Functions: Exposition, Attitude and Argumentation) if you haven't yet mastered the grammar!
The exercises have a star (*) rating which denotes the difficulty of the exercise (* being the easiest, *** being the hardest). This is useful if you want to find something easier or perhaps more challenging as it allows you to pick the exercise you feel is suitable to your ability.Read more ›
