The World of Words is a user-friendly book that students find challenging but very useful. They often see the words in this book in other places such as college textbooks, newspapers, magazines, content area journals and hear them in newscasts and radio broadcasts.
This time-tested, top-selling vocabulary textbook not only teaches students the vocabulary they need for academic success but also provides them with the tools to acquire new words independently for years to come. A wealth of easy to use and engaging exercises offers in-depth word practice. A focus on three critical skills–dictionary use, context clues, and word elements–builds lifelong word acquisition skills. New online audio exercises hone pronunciation, and an abundance of support materials, including pre-written online tests for every chapter, make life a little easier for instructors.
