504 ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL WORDS
This updated vocabulary–building book presents the essential core of words that students at middle–school and higher levels must know and be able to use fluently for academic success. These words also constitute essential vocabulary for ESL students and test–takers, as well as others who speak English as their second language. The authors present a series of brief word–building lessons, each introducing 12 new words that are presented in sample sentences and short articles. Fill–in–the–blanks exercises help students measure their word–building progress. Informed with clear yet simple definitions and examples, readers will find their vocabulary has improved dramatically.
