Explanation

Here, we start the process. A short, but concise explanation is given, detailing the rule(s) as to how and why we use the newly learned grammar point. 

Context

This is where the magic begins! The new grammar point is put into practice, that is, dialogue or text with the newly learnt grammar point being abundantly used. There’s no use just reading a rule with examples and then trying to remember it. You need to see it in a real dialogue or context.

Analysis

Within the dialogue or text, you will find plenty of superscripts or small numbers (4,7,1,4 etc.). These small numbers will be displayed at the top of some particular words in the dialogue or text that need some clarification. It is here in the “analysis” section where we get down and dirty1 by locating difficult parts of the context, while also solidifying and learning the new grammar point.

Our courses – a summary

Analysis: a quick example

(1) Get down and dirty – to do or say unpleasant things or have a conflict. In our case, we’re going to get down and dirty with the English language by going deep into the belly of the beast! By the end of this course, you should have a much greater knowledge of any given aspect of the study.

Do I need to start this tutorial from the beginning?

No. You don’t need to treat this tutorial as a novel. Maybe you’re having trouble with the modal auxiliary verb, can or shall. Or, it could be that you’re not so sure how the passive voice works in English. You should feel free to use this tutorial however you desire.

So, what’s the deal with the small numbers (474) then?

These small numbers (superscripts) are inserted within the “context” section, and then they will be elaborated on further in the “analysis” section. These small numbers are used to outline and elaborate more on difficult points, such as idioms, phrasal verbs, expressions etc., within the context.
