The Easy English Series – Book 4: Easy Punctuation by Margaret Warner
– Punctuation for Students who have little or no Experience of English
The Easy English Series consists of eight books, all of which have been carefully constructed to increase the proficiency of ESL (English as a Second Language) and ESD (English as a Second Dialect) students’ use of standard English. The series immerses students in a language programme which is accessible and relevant to the lives and experiences of young people, regardless of their cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The series is very well laid out with an appealing font, graphics that will appeal to all ages and text is well spaced and uncluttered. The activities in each book are suitable for ESL/ESD students or any student who is struggling with the English language.
Easy English Book 4: Easy Punctuation is the fourth book in the series and aims to improve educational outcomes for ESL students. It encourages students to become familiar with the alphabet and helps them to understand how words are formed from vowels and consonants. It also introduces students to basic but important punctuation, such as: capital letters, full stops, question marks, exclamation marks, commas, speech marks and apostrophes. The book models how to punctuate correctly and inspires students to practise punctuation, by providing them with engaging activities which are enchantingly illustrated and outcome linked. Easy Punctuation is cleverly written to motivate students to begin to write with care and confidence. The solutions for these activities are provided at the back of the book.
