CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study
and are one-stop resources for students.
Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible overview
of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses, commentaries
and key readings - all in the same volume. The innovative and flexible
'two-dimensional' structure is built around four sections - introduction,
development, exploration and extension - which offer self-contained stages for
study. Each topic can also be read across these sections, enabling the reader
to build gradually on the knowledge gained.
