About The Product

Essential Academic Vocabulary prepares students for academic success by helping them preview, learn, and practice vocabulary from the Academic Word List in context. Engaging academic readings highlight chapter vocabulary in context. From chapter to chapter, the readings and vocabulary increase in complexity level, allowing students to establish and build upon a solid vocabulary foundation.


  • Comprehension exercises ask students to use inferences, complete charts, and answer questions designed to assess their understanding of the text and the vocabulary.
  • A focus on dictionary skills, word forms, collocations, and word parts helps students understand and use the dictionary, identify meaning in what they read, and convey meaning in what they write.
  • Communicative activities feature Task-Based and Paragraph Writing Activities as well as Group Speaking Activities and Role Plays that ask students to conduct a variety of written and oral tasks.
  • Online Teaching Center and Study Centers offer an answer key, ideas for games to incorporate into each chapter, tests, and teaching suggestions for instructors.
