Please read all the information carefully in the Orientation lecture. This is where you can find all the information relative to the entire course, including Keynote and PowerPoint slides of each chapter in the grammar and workbook, as well as quizzes and keys to each chapter, all updated to match the fourth edition of BBG.

ProfessorThe website still follows the third edition of BBG, but there are answers sheets and other resources that follow the fourth edition. Click on the "Resources" link above.
