This volume also encourages students to become familiar with the alphabet and helps them to understand how words are formed from vowels and consonants.

The book provides students with clear and uncomplicated definitions of each grammatical term and models how each one is used in basic written texts.
Book 6: Easy Text Types: Introduces the idea that not all texts are the same. The students are encouraged to read and become familiar with the features of narratives, recounts, procedures and information reports; and are motivated to write and edit their own text types with enthusiasm and confidence. Some activities are created to help students revise the grammar and punctuation that they have learned in Books 4 and 5.
Book 7: More Easy Text Types: Continues to develop the idea that there are different types of texts. In the same style as Book 6, this covers explanation, descriptions, expositions, discussions and poems.
Book 8: Easy Editing and Proofreading: Inspires students to practise careful reading and writing by highlighting the importance of drafting, editing and proofreading written work. Students are asked to identify a number of errors in short sentences and in longer texts and are encouraged to re-write the texts correctly. The longer texts help students to remember the ten text types and their specific features that they met in books 6 and 7.
