We organise "community drop-ins" every week for asylum-seekers and refugees, other newcomers and residents, families and people on their own. About 150 people come every week for: free refreshments, play for children (with professional playworkers in the Welcome to Play project), English learning and conversation, advice, information, table-tennis, chess and other games, and friendship. We also organise or help organise special events. And we publish refugee literature with Hafan Books.

Who is this book for? Oxford Practice Grammar is for students of English at a middle or 'intermediate' level. This means students who are no longer beginners but who are not yet expert in English. The book is suitable for those studying for the Cambridge First Certificate in English. It can be used by students attending classes or by someone working alone. What about the tests? There are 25 tests at intervals through the book. You can do a test after you have worked through a group of units. At the beginning of each test you are told which units are being tested. The tests do two things. Firstly, they enable you to find out how well you have mastered the grammar. (If you get things wrong, you can go back to the relevant unit or part of a unit.) Secondly, the tests give you practice in handling exam-type questions. Many of the test questions are similar to those used in the Cambridge First Certificate Use of English Paper.
The use of an incorrect preposition is one of the most common mistakes made by non-native speakers. Here is a link to a free downloadable dictionary of verbs+prepositions.
