5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for "English as a foreign language students" 5 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I didn't read the book from the begining to the end, mainly I used it a reference when I got stuck with a word o prepositions (most of the time). My English teacher asked me to buy it because it would be very useful. I liked that every word mentioned comes with examples of its american, british, canadian or australian usage. It was convenient to me because I studied in a British English school, but I've only been to the USA, so I had trouble communicating because of the difference in vocabulary and spelling. This book helped me a lot. Laura Fernández
