Word Smart, Genius Edition teaches more than 150 of the most captivating and challenging words in the English language.

    Jason Rinka says: "Entertaining way to build your vocabulary."
    "Great, but..."
    Overall

    This is a good audio program - the hosts made the program so easy and fun to listen to. But I've got one complaint-- the foreign words they review. Using foreign words might make it appear than an author or speaker is more intelligent, but a word of English origin is almost always prefered, as it tends to be clearer to most English speakers - so why didn't the hosts simply go over more words of English origin? Oh well :) Also, they review some words I'm never going to use in a million years, like "tradelast" - the meaning is too specific to be of much use in a program like this... though it is fun for some people to learn obscure words.
