Language Toolkit 2 is a workbook for junior secondary students to support the development of language and literacy skills through various communication modes. Students will develop the skills they need to read, view, listen and speak, and to write and create their own texts in a variety of contexts and for a variety of audiences and purposes. With a strong focus on visual grammar and multimodal texts, the workbook's units are organised around different text types that provide a context for the development of language skills. * Grammatical rules are clearly and simply explained * Comprehension, grammar, spelling, punctuation and vocabulary exercises build language and literacy skills * Spelling tests and dictionary exercises encourage vocabulary development confidence * Revision exercises allow students to review their progress and strengthen their understanding and confidence from one unit to the next.
