Pre-Intermediate Course books are required to require Classes in exam scale for acknowledgment . 
 
Pre-Intermediate Course books are needed to take Classes in exam scale for recognition or acceptance
    At Pre Intermediate level there is a lot of revision of grammar points from Elementary level course books, and the grammar points that are expected to be more are often closely related to points that were introduced earlier.
An example of most Elementary level course books introduced the use of โ€ be going to โ€ for talking about future intention.

Then at pre โ€“ intermediate they introduced โ€˜ will โ€˜ for various future uses and Present Continuous for future plans and arrangements { some course books introduce โ€˜ willโ€™ in Elementary rather than โ€˜ be going toโ€™ , but either way all three structures are usually compared and contrasted at Pre โ€“ Intermediate
focuses on varying orders .

 There are two other key regions that learners got to know about โ€“ the composed shape and the talking frame. That’s , what the word looks like , what it sounds like, and in both cases, how it fits in with other words amid ordinary communications .The other   two other key areas that learners need to know about โ€“ the written form and the speaking form., and in all  cases, how it fits in with other words during normal communications

Introduction 
 Lexis 
     It is also vital to teach the grammar around a word, including 
what part of speech{ โ€œ kind of wordโ€ it is, and any pattern that might
occur around it. 
Importance of part of speech. โ€œ What a happy child!โ€ and not โ€œWhat
 a happiness child!โ€ , because โ€œhappyโ€ is an adjective. 
 Importance of patterns: โ€œ I want to go home nowโ€ and not โ€œI want
 going homeโ€ because any verb which follows wantโ€ takes the infinitive
 form. 

   When teaching a new word it is extremely helpful for students if we 
make it clear what part of speech it is – is it a countable or uncountable 
noun, is it a transitive or intransitive verb, is it an adjective, or an adverb,
 or a preposition, etc. An easy way to highlight this through two simple
steps: 
When planning the lesson, look up the part of speech in a dictionary.
After teaching the meaning and pronunciation, write the word
 on the white board and include the part of speech. 
For example: 
Collection {n}{C}{u} { these symbols mean: noun, countable or uncountable} 
Typically {adv}    {adverb}
Describe {v}{T}  { verb which is transitive}
Common {adj} { Adjective}
Pair {n}[C]    { noun which is countable} 
Together {adv}   {adverb} 


Then it helps to add: 
For Nouns: It is usually preceded by a,an or the, or is it usually in plural form, or none of these? 
Compare: the world, a pencil,jeans,water
For verbs: Does it usually have one or two objects? 
Compare: He hit me. {hit+somebody}  He gave me the pen. {give + somebody+ something}
For Verbs: It it usually followed by a preposition? If so, which one? 
Compare: apply for a job: escape from prison; adhere to the rules, dig it up a bone. 
For adjectives: Is it usually followed by a preposition? If so, which one?
Compare: scared of mine; excited about the party; happy with the 
promotion. 


This kind of information can be clarified in a similar way on the board 
{ Note: sb = somebody; sth= something; do =any verb}

                  the world {n}{C}
                  Jeans {n}[C]{pl}
                  Hit   sb
                 Give   sb sth
                 Want  { to do sth }
                Apply { for sth}

Alternatively, it can be highlighted within an example sentence, 
for example: 

He has travelled all over the world. 
I wear jeans at the weekend.
The courier gave me a letter. 
Have you applied for a raise yet?
