Painless is exactly how I would discribe this book. My children's vocabulary has grown considerably in a matter of weeks with this book. I am very, very pleased with the results and recommend it to anyone who has a child that needs help in that area. It is geared toward middle school aged kids.

This workbook is an excellent tool for Adult ESL Learners at the High Intermediate Level or above. It can be used together in the classroom, and also as a homework assignment. It's a small book that is easily carried in a purse or backpack. The lessons are short and I encourage my students to take their book out and work in it any time they are sitting in their car....waiting for their children after school etc. The book is written for typical Middle school and High School students, so it is very appropriate for Adult ESL learners. The book is inexpensive and therefore not a financial burden. I also recommend the other books in the series, including the Grammar, Spelling, Writing and the ESL version.
