'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
