English for Academic Study: Vocabulary

This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Vocabulary will help you expand and develop the vocabulary skills you need to participate effectively and confidently in all academic situations.

The units are based on the following topics:

Each unit introduces you to key academic words and illustrates how to use information in a dictionary to gain a more effective and appropriate use of vocabulary. This book is intended for self-study outside the classroom and includes a complete answer key and an achievement test so that you can monitor your progress.

EAS: Vocabulary includes unit summaries to give you a quick overview of what you have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities, relating to the topics covered in the units.

“The EAS Vocabulary Study Book is an excellent self-study book. It introduces the most commonly used words from both general and academic word family lists, which I find very useful. It also provides extensive practice. The units are based on topics such as multi-meaning words, word classes, collocations, and word grammar. Each unit has weblinks offering additional information and activities, and the appendix also provides an extensive list of word families.”

- Margaret Oertig for ETAS Journal, Vol. 30, No 3, Summer 2013
