Description: Learners need to have large vocabulary - an estimated 6,000-7,000 word families according to recent research - to function effectively in an English environment, and even more to read a range of authentic texts. Now in an expanded two-book series, the research-based Focus on Vocabulary breaks down this task Into achievable, short-term language acquisition goals.
Focus on Vocabulary 1: Bridging Vocabulary fills the gap between high-frequency and lower-frequency vocabulary - teaching mid-frequency vocabulary and preparing intermediate to high-intermediate students for the kinds of words found in novels, newspapers, films, and social and workplace settings.
Focus on Vocabulary 2: Mastering the Academic Word List uses thorough recycling of academic words and well-crafted exercises to introduce high-intermediate and advanced students to the vocabulary they need for academic and test-taking success.
