Product Description

Review

'One clear reason why English Vocabulary in Use will succeed is apparent in its coverage. The authors offer plenty of lexical breadth to their intended audience of upper intermediate and advanced learners … Like puzzle or crossword books are for many a train traveller, the English Vocabulary in Use formula is potentially addictive to the industrious, independently studying learner of English. The book will certainly do much to feed learners' prodigious appetites for lexis as it offers both an engaging work of reference and a cornucopia of lively vocabulary practice. It is set to become a standard work among learners the world over.' VATME Newsletter no. 58, 1995

'CUP are right: there is still room for a good vocabulary book at advanced level. And indeed, a self-study book seems most appropriate at this level: students at advanced level usually have different needs, and in this way valuable class time is gained to focus on other skills … there is not just attention for the meaning of the words, but also for collocation and patterning - just the ticket for advanced learners … This book does not only look good, it stands up to closer inspection. The concept is very good indeed, the coverage looks ok.' VLE Newsletter, 1994

'The day [English Vocabulary in Use ] landed on my desk I was in need of inspiration for ways of extending … students who seemed to have reached a plateau. In it, I found lots of ideas to use in vocabulary extension … [and] … lots of suggestions to help the students organise their vocabulary books.' Peter Clyburn, Faculty of Language, Southbank Institute of TAFE, Newsletter 2

'I am sure English Vocabulary in Use will be welcomed by teachers and students. I found much of value in it and recommend it as a source of classwork, individual study or homework tasks. Definitely worth a look!' ATESOL ACT No 2, 1995 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is book is one of the few books I can wholeheartedly recommend for students of English. It is easy to use and covers most of the areas a general student would wish to look into, such as: a guide to the language of headlines in newspapers, vocabulary to do with crime, taste, sense, sounds, feelings. It also covers more concrete topics such as politics, money and shopping.
The format of the book is traditional, and it is very much a book to do with learning. The exercises which follow the vocabulary explanations are imaginative and effective.
I feel even more depth in the book would have been fascinating - otherwise I do not hesitate to give it four stars.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Louise on 11 Oct. 2011
Format: Paperback
I would have preferred to have bought this book before the 'pre-intermediate and intermediate vocabulary in use' as many of the units are the same even though this is more thorough. I thought I would have found something a little more difficult as the Advanced version is way ahead of this one, in spite of being the next step up. However I love these 'In use' books and the students leave the class knowing they have learnt something from each Unit.

Format: Paperback
This book is not for beginners or intermediate students. It is very comprehensive. Every unit based on one page learning opposite page for exercises. For beginners I recommend Target Vocabulary serie (1,2,3).
