Product Description


English for Academic Study: Vocabulary

English for academic study: Vocabulary provides students with systematic practice in using key academic words from 300 word families and illustrates how to use the information in a dictionary to make more effective and appropriate use of their vocabulary. Intended for self-study outside formal classes, the book includes a complete answer key as well as an achievement test that can be used to test students’ knowledge and progress.

The book is supported by an extensive review of research into EAP methodology and reflects the most recent developments in language teaching for academic purposes.

The units are organized as follows:

  • Multi-Meaning Words
  • Word Classes
  • Word Families and Word Parts
  • Collocations
  • Word Grammar

Each unit has weblinks offering additional information and activities, related to both vocabulary skills and the topics covered in the units. A dedicated website, www.englishforacademicstudy.com, offers further instructor resources.

This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for academic study series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS Reading & Writing, EAS Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS Listening, and EAS Speaking & Pronunciation.
