Publisher's Summary

This 60-minute program offers 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 but which many skip, finding them difficult, or even impossible, to define or pronounce accurately. Using highly effective mnemonic devices, captivating dramatized vignettes, and a variety of exercises to aid retention, Word Builders teaches you how to pronounce, define, and use a new selection of common but hard-to-use words.

Great Reinforcement, Outdated Style

Ths program has bad audio quality just as the previous review stated. The stories used to reinforce the words are a little hokey and I feel like a small child being spoken to by an overenthusiastic adult. However, the words and repetition used for reinforcement make this program worth the time. I have learned and retained words I previously hadn't heard. If you want to update your vocabulary or prepare for a test (I'm preparing for the MAT), then this is worth the listen.
