Build a stronger vocabulary in just an hour with this fast and funny exercise program. You'll learn tough words and tricky meanings, and you can test your knowledge at the end of each session with a quick quiz. The tape includes parts of speech, spellings, definitions, pronunciations, and 60 troubling terms - and all with humorous or pointed examples that help you remember them easily. Author Jeffrey McQuain created the Smithsonian Institution's first course on the American language and coauthored the best seller The Elements of English.

Simply wonderful & different

I have a big collection of vocabulary books & audio products, but the approach of this one is different. It teaches to learn from roots of words. I have been teaching my daughters with the help of this program. I wish the producers come up with more of this type.

Very good - too bad there is not a series

I found this audiobook very helpful and the techniques utilized were conducive to learning. It is fairly inexpensive, educational, and somewhat entertaining. There was certainly impetus to listen from beginning to end. In fact, I listened to it several times in the first week. Go for it, become erudite in the many words of the English language.
