Course Description

Have you ever been reading a newspaper or listening to a commentary and been confronted with a word you didn't know -- like for instance, plethora?  Over the years, you've seen and heard this word 20 times but you don't quite manage to remember the definition or use the word yourself when writing or speaking. You were supposed to have learned all this vocabulary stuff in high school or college but maybe you were absent that day? Well, It's never to late to fill in some of the gaps.


Increase your vocabulary at your own pace! Memorize just 10 words a day - or a week - whatever works for your schedule. In some cases it's not really memory work - it's just 'refreshing'. Amaze your business associates, family, friends, and (more importantly) yourself by enhancing your conversational skills. Not only will you avoid the embarrassment of misusing or mispronouncing words, but also with the right vocabulary you may impress others with your dexterous and inventive handling of important concepts without being considered a show-off.  Plus vocabulary enrichment does wonders for your self-esteem and certainly  has the added benefits of helping with crossword puzzles and Trivial Pursuit.

Through these interactive lessons, which have divided up ten different words in twenty lessons, you will learn interesting and relevant vocabulary.  Words used frequently by "experts" to describe various cultures, words used in restaurants, words used in economics and business, legal words, technology terms, psychological jargon and much more. You'll not only practice using the words in a sentence you create, you'll also be writing short paragraphs with some of the words.  Although the course emphasis is on vocabulary building, you'll have the added bonus of  receiving some general writing assistance. So join the class and retain some of those words you once learned and promptly forgot.

Wouldn't you like to Enhance Your Everyday Vocabulary? Now you can increase your vocabulary at your own pace! If you can memorize just 10 words a day - or a week - or a month- whatever works for your schedule - you can develop a richer vocabulary. In some cases it's not really memory work - it's just 'refreshing'. Amaze your business associates, family, friends, and (more importantly) yourself by enhancing your conversational skills. Not only will you avoid the embarrassment of misusing or mispronouncing words, but also with the right vocabulary you may impress others with your dexterous and inventive handling of important concepts without being considered a show-off. Plus vocabulary enrichment does wonders for your self-esteem and certainly helps with crossword puzzles!
