English for Academic Study: Vocabulary English for academic study: Vocabulary provides students with systematic practice in using key academic words from the 300 word families and illustrates how to use the information in a dictionary to make a more effective and appropriate use of their vocabulary. Intended for self-study outside formal classes, the book includes a complete answer key as well as an achievement test that can be used before or following the course to test students' knowledge and progress. The design of the material is based on work carried out on pre-sessional courses at the University of Reading's Centre for Applied Language Studies. It is supported by an extensive review of research into EAP methodology and reflects the most recent developments in language teaching for academic purposes. The 2009 edition of EAS Vocabulary has been fully revised for ease of use. As well as a new format, the Study Book now comes with a book map and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit has weblinks offering additional information and activities, related to both vocabulary skills and the topics covered in the units. A dedicated website, www.englishforacademicstudy.com, offers further teacher resources. This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for academic study series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS Reading, EAS Writing, EAS Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS Listening, EAS Speaking and EAS Pronunciation.
