A good book to increase students' vocabulary in many useful
on 30 October 2001
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.
