Understanding and Using English Grammar Interactive and Fundamentals of English Grammar Interactive allow students to study grammar as they never have before. Through a dynamic combination of animation, audio, and voice recordings, each multimedia program provides more than 100 hours of instruction and interactive practice.

Both Azar multimedia programs mirror the syllabus of the textbooks and provide extensive grammar practice using a variety of interactive tools. They can be used to combine classroom instruction with computer-based learning or for self-study practice. These CD-ROMs are ideal for lab/classroom-based instruction and as a supplement to the Azar Grammar Series.
