It is a great book for improving vocabulary. All topics are in good order and can help children improve their English learning, usage of basic words and vocabulary skills. I would highly recommend this book for any child who wants to improve vocabulary.

5.0 out of 5 stars An fantastically functional vocabulary resource..., 26 Sep 2012
By

This review is from: Oxford Word Skills: Basic: Student's Pack (Book and CD-ROM) (Book & CD Rom) (Paperback)
Vocabulary experts Ruth Gairns and Stuart Redman ("True to Life" & "Working with Words") continue their long collaboration with this innovative first entry into a 3-level self-study vocabulary series. Perhaps inspired by their recent work on the "Natural English" course they differentiate this latest series from the pack by giving it a functional framework which allows the words to be contextualised in full sentences in reasonably authentic encounters.

This initial entry aimed at CEF A1-2 concentrates on high frequency spoken vocabulary drawn from the Oxford 3000 corpus and is corralled into such aspirationally entitled units as "I can arrange a holiday" and "I can express my opinion" to give students a fulfilling sense of achievement. The phrase and sentence level structure inherent in this layout does however render it, unlike main competitor Michael McCarthy's "English Vocabulary in Use Elementary", unsuitable for beginners.

There is a nice variety of exercises laid out along a PPP structure relete with some nice opportunities for personalisation which has proved to be such a valuable supplement to traditional elementary coursebooks both for in class study and as set self-study homework that I just can't recommend it enough. The book also comes with a CD-ROM containing some point and click nonsense and pronunciation models and the fantastic cover and check card which aid self-study.

The series, which covers 2,000 words over 80 units at each of the 3 levels, was quite rightly highly commended at the English-Speaking Union's Duke of Edinburgh English Language Book Award in 2009 as "an invaluable resource for teachers and a goldmine for learners" and if the number of times I have gone to my locker to find it missing are anything to go by then I am not the only one to thoroughly agree with this assessment. I can recommend this book.
