Teachers are always trying to encourage students to organize their vocabulary more logically. This book does it for them - 100 units organized around the topics that students need to be able to talk about from the typical old favourites (food, leisure time etc to the less frequently exploited (religion, social issues and an ecellent unit on football). Each unit starts by checking the basic vocabulary that students need to talk about the topic area and then introduces more challenging lexis. The exercises themselves are varied - gap-fill, matching and categorizing are all made use of and much of the language is at phrase level so students never feel they are simply learning lists of words. At the end of every unit there is a box where students can add their own words and phrases.
This book teaches over 5000 new words and expressions with over 650 vocabulary exercises. Fully illustrated and full answer key. I also recommend Intermediate Vocabulary by B J Thomas. And Target Vocabulary 1-2-3 by Peter Watcyn Jones. Highly recommended.
An extremely useful addition to the EFL classroom. The book is organised topic by topic and can be used to back up a lesson. Also very useful for students enabling them to take control in organising their vocabulary subject by subject.
Purchased 2 copies for my wife & my friends wife who are both English is not their mother tongue language... Really very valuable vocabulary book.. Recommended for those wishing to enhance their English vocabulary...
