This course of six books presents the student with a vocabulary of thousands of words, many of which will be unfamiliar to him. A basic conversation may be conducted in English with a total vocabulary of less than one thousand words. The “average” citizen lives his life happily and successfully with a lot less than ten thousand words. It follows, therefore, that the person with a larger vocabulary than average will have a distinct advantage in life.These workbooks are designed to assist the would-be wordsmith in the acquisition of a larger-than-average vocabulary. They are suitable for working by the student of any age or level of ability, as well as those for whom English is a foreign language. English is the language of international travel and commerce and these books will provide a solid foundation for those who perceive “average” as an insufficient level of attainment.
