Vocabulary for IELTS by Pauline Cullen

Published by Cambridge University Press

This self study book ( with answers ) works effectively as a language book between tutor and student . It has many varied tasks( from gap filling, listening comprehension, multiple choice, speaking topics, writing and reading tasks, word building exercises, to end of unit tests) built around themes, such as Keeping Fit, Talking Business, Urbanisation etc . The accompanying audio CD can be used for dictation, as well as pronunciation and comprehension purposes . There are units on Language building units ,so one can look at technique in more detail.

I found this book very enjoyable to use and navigate, easy to use in conjunction with other resources , and can be dipped in and out of . I also like how the units can lend themselves to creative teaching methods.

The student can feel they will progress steadily in terms of language, thematic issues and vocabulary acquisition . Great for stretching the learner
