1500 Words in 15 Minutes a Day by Ceil Cleveland

This title features: a fool-proof, intensive plan to power up your vocabulary; and, 52 chapters, each presenting new words with easy-to-use techniques for understanding and retention, so that working only 15 minutes a day, readers will add 1500 words to their vocabulary. Controlled vocabulary techniques are a proven method for overcoming the resistance to learning new words, especially among older learners, from adolescence to adulthood. Presenting new words in a narrative context that makes their meaning clear is one of the most effective systems of instilling words in memory for the long term. This book will offer four new words for every day of focused, vocabulary building.
