By Daisy Andersen, IELTS book reviewer:
‘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.’
By Andrew Michael – IELTS Teacher in UK:
This is book is one of the few books I can wholeheartedly recommend for students of English. It is easy to use and covers most of the areas a general student would wish to look into, such as: a guide to the language of headlines in newspapers, vocabulary to do with crime, taste, sense, sounds, feelings. It also covers more concrete topics such as politics, money and shopping.
The format of the book is traditional, and it is very much a book to do with learning. The exercises which follow the vocabulary explanations are imaginative and effective.
