Language for Thinking builds upon the concepts, vocabulary, and statement patterns introduced in Language for Learning.

The programme’s content, including making inferences, retelling accounts, and determining meanings of sentences, sets the stage for reading comprehension and the grammatical analysis of written language.

 

Features:

  • Carefully organised sequences of exercises that emphasise reasoning and critical thinking.
  • Exceptional vocabulary development including work with homonyms, synonyms, antonyms, and definitions.
  • Extensive practice with word usage including forming contractions and “untangling” sentences with double negatives.
  • Sequencing and retelling exercises that challenge students to remember important details.
  • Inference activities that require students to draw conclusions and explain their answers.
