"People judge you by the words you use." This has never been more true than in our text-driven world of quick communications and often sloppy language use. Word Workout is a practical audiobook for building vocabulary—a graduated program featuring thousands of words that begins with words known by most college graduates and ascends to words known only by the most educated, intelligent, and well-read adults. The workout is a comprehensive program, chock-full of information about synonyms, antonyms, and word origins, and replete with advice on proper usage and pronunciation, with creative review quizzes and longer review tests after each level to reinforce learning. Unlike other vocabulary audiobooks, Word Workout provides a complete learning experience, with clear explanations of meanings, word histories, usages, pronunciation, and more. Far more than a cram session for a standardized test, the audiobook is designed as a lifetime vocabulary builder, teaching a vocabulary shared by only the top percentage of Americans, with a proven method that helps the knowledge last.
From "tribulation" to "nefarious," from "meander" to "impropriety," Charles Elster has carefully picked the words you need to know, and given you an easy, fast, and fail-safe way to learn and remember them.
