When information about grammar or other general matters is required, usually many references such as dictionaries, grammar manuals or encyclopaedias need to be consulted, which can be a daunting task indeed. The new macro English aid provides all of this information in a single volume.
The new macro English aid is divided into two parts: language and grammar; and general knowledge. For easy reference, the information is divided into sections and arranged alphabetically.
Contents include the following:
- Language and grammar: punctuation, tenses, degrees of comparison, direct and indirect speech, derivations, synonyms and antonyms
- General knowledge: currencies around the world, inventions, chemical elements, conversion tables, planets, presidents and prime ministers, capital cities, the seven wonders of the ancient world
The new macro English aid is aimed at learners, students, parents and the general public alike.
