A new six-level grammar practice series for primary pupils aged 6 to 12 which provides an introduction to grammatical concepts and written practice of them. The step-by-step grammar presentations introduce form, use and meaning in a way that even young beginner learners can understand and remember. The series was written to support the syllabus of Family and Friends but is an ideal supplement to any elementary general English course.
This is the first book in a two-part series which takes a lively approach to developing writing skills. The book contains carefully graded exercises with colour picture stories designed to motivate younger learners. Writing skills are then systematically developed through four sections, from sentence construction to simple paragraph composition.

The best rule on writing in any genre is that there are no rigid rules. All rules on writing can be, and have been, broken.

3. To learn the rules before you break them, you need to do two things:
For middle-aged people,
disability is defined in terms of ability to work or do housework. For children,
disability is the inability to participate in mainstream education. An important
difference between functioning loss and disability is the potential influence of the
external environment. Although in practice it may sometimes be difficult to clearly
separate the two concepts, functioning loss is defined as a functioning deficit in
an individual; disability on the other hand is an inability to perform within the
Many people who develop materials try to create something for “everyone.” After all, everyone
needs good information and would probably benefit from knowing what you have to say. In
reality, no one thing is right for everyone. Instead, certain things tend to work best for certain
groups of people. The more narrowly you can define these groups, the closer you will come to
meeting their needs. That is why materials should speak to a particular audience: people who
share similar characteristics and have similar information needs.
With regard to English passage comprehension, the children initially instructed in
Spanish and transitioned into English at the end of second grade made the most gains
between the end of second grade and the end of fourth grade. At the end of fourth grade,
the monolingual English-speaking students had the highest scores, followed by the
Spanish-speaking English-instructed students, Spanish-speaking students transitioned at
the end of second grade, and Spanish-speaking students transitioned at the end of third
This booklet is intended as a practical guide to assist countries that
are setting up a national statistical organization to communicate
effectively with the media, and in turn, with the general public. It
does not pretend to solve every problem that a national statistical
organization will face. However, it offers the best advice from
those statistical agencies that have been doing the job for years, to
those who may be just starting out.
A vast proliferation of information is currently being produced in attempts to improve patient
education and access to care in underserved communities. Health educators, providers, and
institutions produce materials in various print, audio and video formats, in common and lesser-
known languages of immigrants, refugees and ethnic minority communities. Information
tailored to African Americans, indigenous tribes, LGBT communities, people with limited
literacy, and other distinctive populations is becoming easier to find.

In 2002, the Human Sciences Research Council was commissioned by the WK Kellogg Foundation to develop and implement a five-year intervention project focusing on orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) in southern Africa. In collaboration with several partner organizations, the project currently focuses on how children, families and communities in Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe are coping with the impact of HIV/AIDS. The aim of the project is to develop models of best practise so as to enhance and improve support structures for OVC in the southern African region as a whole....

Natural Language Generation (NLG) is a way to automatically realize a correct expression in response to a communicative goal. This technology is mainly explored in the fields of machine translation, report generation, dialog system etc. In this paper we have explored the NLG technique for another novel applicationassisting disabled children to take part in conversation. The limited physical ability and mental maturity of our intended users made the NLG approach different from others. We have taken a flexible approach where main emphasis is given on flexibility and usability of the system.
Congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract are
reported to occur in 5 to 10% of the population . They
represent 25% of the total ultrasonographically diagnosed
malformations that occur in 0.25–0.7% of fetuses. About
1/3 to 2/3 of ESRD in children are due to congenital ab-
normalities of the kidney and urinary tract. In addition, these
abnormalities occur in 23% of patients with chromosomal
aberrations, and 2/3 of patients with abnormalities of other

Word by word helps students relate the vocabulary and themes they study to their own lives. Discussion questions in every unit encourage students to share expe-riences, thoughts, opinions, and information about themselves, their cultures, and their countries. In this way, students get to know each other "word by word"
Language is the best means of communication. In the modern globalization era it is not enough to be able to speak one language to communicate with the outside world. I strongly support the idea that children should begin learning a foreign language as soon as they start school. They faster become familiar with a strange language, improve their hearing ability to understand new words as time goes by and learn new words. In the following paragraphs I will list some reasons to support my position.

Desai et al. (2004) provide a meta-analysis of health effects from household solid fuel air
pollution. Health effects were categorized by level of evidence from the research
literature. Relative risk ratios associated with solid fuel use, relative to clean fuels such
as LPG, were derived for each health outcome (table 3.1).
The national and global
mortality and DALY estimates presented by WHO (2007) reflect the relative risk ratios in
Desai et al, limiting the health effects to ALRI in children u5, and COPD and lung cancer
in adult women and men.
