The photocopy master books are incremental in difficulty and can be used in a systematic structured way or used to complement any other grammar work or text level work being undertaken. Each book has 10 units. The first page in a unit has an explantion and an example as well as tasks for the pupil. The second page in the unit reinforces and extends the work already learnt.
