The previous level, Well-Ordered Language Level 1, helped students to master the eight parts of speech, along with object pronouns, prepositional and adverbial phrases, compound subjects, compound verbs, and compound objects. Any student who mastered these concepts should be prepared for Well-Ordered Language Level 2. In Book 2B, students will review and strengthen skills learned in Level 1 and Book 2A and be introduced to several new concepts. Student using this text will also learn to diagram sentences, visualizing the grammatical relationships within sentences.
Note: There will be a total of four levels, each containing a Book A and Book B, and we will be releasing one level (two books) each year.

“Another reason I stopped by your booth was to see the new grammar curriculum—it’s enchanting! (I never thought I would use ‘grammar curriculum’ and ‘enchanting’ in the same sentence!!!) Just like the new Writing & Rhetoric program. Thank you for consistently producing materials that overflow with goodness, truth, and beauty!” —Julie E, homeschool mom
