Publisher's Summary

Four 60-minute programs offer a convenient and entertaining way to build a more powerful vocabulary. Each hour features 40 words used in everyday conversation or in the media and books that many skip over because they are difficult to define or pronounce accurately. Word Builders uses mnemonic devices, dramatized vignettes, and a variety of exercises to show you how to retain the meanings and pronunciations of these challenging words, as well as how to use them in conversation effectively and naturally.

Simply the best program around!

The whole Word Builders Vocabulary set from Vol 1 to 6 is simply the best vocabulary program around. Too bad they stopped producing the series. Nothing else since has ever equaled the Word Builders program. Others have tried, but to no avail. I was lucky to find the series being offered on line over the Internet in digital audio format. Without being overtly outré (one of the word I learned from Word Builders), nothing else compares to this series. You will NOT be disappointed.

Excellent! I jot down each word...

I love this, I got this a few years ago... I couldn't get to it sooner because not having the list of words prevented me from learning the words.

But now, I'm galvanized, inspired, I have a notebook and I jot down each word, then check its spelling online (online dictionaries, use ones u trust)... the system of pneumonics are really helpful, I like the readers, it's actually a lot more fun than reading a vocabulary list.

Again, I love it!
