Language teaching in the classroom happens in an integrated way. The Language Gaps books
were developed to give learners the chance to practice one skill at a time to help learners to
overcome problem areas so that they don’t continue into later years.


Each Language Gaps book covers Grades 4, 5 and 6 and works through all the basics that learners
will need.
