Publisher's Summary

This 60-minute program offers a convenient and entertaining way to build a more powerful vocabulary. Each hour features 40 words used in everyday conversation or in the media and books but which many skip, finding them difficult, or even impossible, to define or pronounce accurately. Using highly effective mnemonic devices, captivating dramatized vignettes, and a variety of exercises to aid retention, Word Builders teaches you how to pronounce, define, and use a new selection of common but hard-to-use words.

Great Reinforcement, Outdated Style

Ths program has bad audio quality just as the previous review stated. The stories used to reinforce the words are a little hokey and I feel like a small child being spoken to by an overenthusiastic adult. However, the words and repetition used for reinforcement make this program worth the time. I have learned and retained words I previously hadn't heard. If you want to update your vocabulary or prepare for a test (I'm preparing for the MAT), then this is worth the listen.

Very bad audio quality

If you buy audio files to learn english, audio quality is a must !! I will never buy other files like this one.

Simply the best program around!

The whole Word Builders Vocabulary set from Vol 1 to 6 is simply the best vocabulary program around. Too bad they stopped producing the series. Nothing else since has ever equaled the Word Builders program. Others have tried, but to no avail. I was lucky to find the series being offered on line over the Internet in digital audio format. Without being overtly outré (one of the word I learned from Word Builders), nothing else compares to this series. You will NOT be disappointed.
