You'll practice the various concepts with review exercises, repeating any section until you're comfortable. As you develop and enhance your skills, you'll learn how to:

.
    .
  • Write natural-sounding sentences .
  • Write personal and business letters .
  • Write original stories .
  • Increase your proficiency in vocabulary usage .
. .

You can use the answer key to not only check your work but also to find suggestions for writing appropriate sentences for any of the exercises.
