Overview

Do you ever find yourself using a word without fully understanding its meaning? What kind of liar is egregious? Do you have a perspicacious mind? Words are a valuable resource and essential to social and business success, yet often we find ourselves struggling to use them appropriately. Improve Your Word Power is a step-by-step course for improving your language skills. Beginning with a test of your present vocabulary, it goes on to present a series of forty self-study sessions in twelve chapters. Each word is linked to an easy-to-remember example in which it can be used. Further sessions lead you on to etymologies and word-building, and give links to
'families' of associated words. At the end of each session, a test enables you to check your progress.

Packed with lively examples and anecdotes of words in action, learning advice, and 'Teaser Questions', Improve Your Word Power is a stimulating and informative means of boosting your language skills.
