Communicating with Grammar: Skills for Life is a Canadian series for ESL and EFL students looking to improve their understanding of English grammar. Students improve their command of English through a broad spectrum of themed chapters that set them up for further study or work in anEnglish-speaking environment. Through a "learn-practise-use in context" approach, the books deliver the essential grammar concepts via both practical exercises and communicative activities which help students internalize the grammar in context, helping them become functional in English as quicklyand efficiently as possible. Level 3 is the bridging level to fluency in English usage. At the completion of this level, students will have the confidence to communicate with native speakers academically or professionally.
