Helps students build and use strong vocabularies

Academic Vocabulary makes the study of vocabulary improvement interactive and enjoyable. Through thematic readings, self-tests, and interactive exercises, students can apply their skills to writing, personal experience, art, and many other formats that generate excitement about improving their vocabularies. Each activity plays on individual learning styles to help students learn new words in a large number of contexts.

The Sixth Edition retains the book’s strong visual appeal, as well as its philosophy that an essential part of learning vocabulary is repeated exposure to a word. As a result, it provides eight to ten exposures to each vocabulary word throughout the text, plus additional instances in the review section and activities throughout the book. With new readings and additional words, this edition of Academic Vocabulary offers greater exposure to a more diverse academic wordbase than ever before.
