Summary: Townsend Press will continue to sell the 2/e of Groundwork for a Better Vocabulary through summer 2004 or until copies are exhausted.
A slightly higher-level text than Vocabulary Basics, the newly-revised edition of Groundwork for a Better Vocabulary has been expanded so that it now teaches 250 essential words and 100 more than were covered in the first edition.
Features >More practice. Several new activities have been added to each chapter, including practice in 1) related words, 2) word parts or analogies or synonyms-antonyms, and 3) use of the words in short speaking and writing exercises. In addition, chapters now repeat more words from earlier chapters, allowing for greater reinforcement. Also, crossword puzzles provide unit reviews. The diverse and expanded practice helps ensure that the 250 core words become part of a student's permanent word bank.
