using Hands-On English – with Linking Blocks™
Typical grammar instruction teaches grammatical form and function separate from each other, which can make it difficult to learn. This class teaches grammatical form and function together in an explicit, cumulative manner which makes it easier to understand, and provides a foundation that is helpful for reading and writing.
