Editorial Reviews


'One clear reason why English Vocabulary in Use will succeed is apparent in its coverage. The authors offer plenty of lexical breadth to their intended audience of upper intermediate and advanced learners ... Like puzzle or crossword books are for many a train traveller, the English Vocabulary in Use formula is potentially addictive to the industrious, independently studying learner of English. The book will certainly do much to feed learners' prodigious appetites for lexis as it offers both an engaging work of reference and a cornucopia of lively vocabulary practice. It is set to become a standard work among learners the world over.' VATME Newsletter no. 58, 1995

'CUP are right: there is still room for a good vocabulary book at advanced level. And indeed, a self-study book seems most appropriate at this level: students at advanced level usually have different needs, and in this way valuable class time is gained to focus on other skills ... there is not just attention for the meaning of the words, but also for collocation and patterning - just the ticket for advanced learners ... This book does not only look good, it stands up to closer inspection. The concept is very good indeed, the coverage looks ok.' VLE Newsletter, 1994

'The day [English Vocabulary in Use ] landed on my desk I was in need of inspiration for ways of extending ... students who seemed to have reached a plateau. In it, I found lots of ideas to use in vocabulary extension ... [and] ... lots of suggestions to help the students organise their vocabulary books.' Peter Clyburn, Faculty of Language, Southbank Institute of TAFE, Newsletter 2

'I am sure English Vocabulary in Use will be welcomed by teachers and students. I found much of value in it and recommend it as a source of classwork, individual study or homework tasks. Definitely worth a look!' ATESOL ACT No 2, 1995 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Konstantin Lissianski on March 27, 2001
Format: Paperback
The book will help ESL students extend their vocabulary. The format is very efficient - even pages contain the material, odd pages contain the exercises. The book has 100 units and every unit explains a unique phenomenon of the English language. The Index encounters about three and a half thousand English words which for me is quite a lot. You will find six units on idioms, a unit on slang and much more. The book is for upper-intermediate and advanced students. If you are just a beginner, look for books with the same title for beginners or intermediate students.

This vocabulary guide is excellent. The format is very easy to use and very accessible. I am an ESL teacher and am always looking for more vocabulary for my students and exercises to go with that new vocabulary and this book covers both. If you like the English Grammar in Use books, you'll love this one.

The only thing I would change is that I would probably get the intermediate level instead. Although my students are advanced, this level is a little bit challenging for them.
