  Essential Modern Vocabulary Use: Review , 06/04/2011
Reviewer: K. B. (Bush) Gulati
Essential Modern Vocabulary Use is the fruit of the author's experience first as a student of a number of disciplines and subsequently as a teacher of varieties of English to adult learners in different parts of the world for close to forty years. To make this learning tool relevant to a broad spectrum of today's students, the author has garnered a word bank of non-technical terms from current affairs. The exposure will take the learner a long way to give him the confidence he needs to communicate effectively. This book teaches correct pronunciation with the help of the alphabet the student already knows, thus saving hm the uncertainty that comes from learning a new alphabet. He will also find the learning tips very useful. K. B. (Bush) Gulati Professor emeritus of English George Brown College Toronto

Reviewer: Michelle T.
Well, English is my second language. This unique book includes plenty of words enough for intermediate to advanced English learners to consolidate and expand their knowledge of vocabulary. It would be an excellent teaching tool for classroom use as well as a great reference for self-study.
