ISBN: 140508006X

As teachers we often talk about “covering” grammar points. Thornbury explains why it is more useful to think about how we “uncover” grammar, to reveal the workings of the system to our students and encourage them to notice what is going on.

The book uses extracts from exchanges in real classrooms, authentic texts and language teaching tasks. It provides lots of practical activities so that you can immediately and easily put the ideas to work in your classroom.
