The basis for good communication is expressing oneself clearly. Words represent thoughts and meaning, and the more words you know, the easier it will be to express yourself in writing or speech. This course will introduce you to five hundred vocabulary words common to native speakers of English. These are high-frequency words that commonly occur on various levels and in a wide range of subjects such as science, business, arts, etc. By taking this course, you will gain a good foundation for communicating well in the English language.

The course has twenty-five lessons each teaching twenty words. The lessons use pictures and words to help you recall words and their meanings easily. Each lesson is immediately followed by a story that uses the words learned to further deepen your understanding of the words and their application in the proper context. You will learn the grammatical form the word is most often used as and then in the exercises that follow, practice what you have learned. As you practice, you should notice improvements in your comprehension and speech.

You will be learning words such as: alive, bone, injustice, international, lawyer, mention, and policy. Some titles of the stories you will read are The Starfish, Princess Rose and the Creature, The Friendly Ghost, and many more.
