In just 1 hour, you can impress your friends and family with a stronger vocabulary. This guide offers a fast and funny way to learn tough words and tricky meanings. The program highlights 60 troubling terms and gives parts of speech, pronunciations, spellings, and definitions. And at the end of each exercise, a quick quiz reinforces the meanings of these words. It's better than regular exercise: no sore muscles. Author Jeffrey McQuain created the Smithsonian Institution's first course on the American language and coauthored the best seller The Elements of English.
