Advice to the Student
Obtain a Dictionary Before attempting to use this book, you will need to obtain a good English-English dictionary, such as the Easier English Dictionary for Students (ISBN: 978 07475 6624 3) published by A&C Black Publishers Ltd, which this workbook has been based on.
Using your Dictionary A dictionary is really a long list of individual words, but in normal situations, words are very rarely used on their own, appearing instead together with other words. For this reason, the vocabulary you will learn in this book is presented in example sentences which will help you to understand the words, to remember them more easily, and to use them correctly.
