A series of vocabulary-building textbooks for students of English as a second language
Volume 8 consists of 14 units that present basewords with definitions, usage examples, and exercises. Each unit focuses on a specific topic, carefully selected for its relevance to academic study, so that students can practice new words in meaningful contexts. The exercises are flexible and easy to use, taking students from simple, faily controlled practice to a final phase of communicative exercise. New to Volume 8 are collocation practice and crossword puzzles.
