內容連載

HOW TO START BUILDING YOUR VOCABULARY

When you have finished working with this book, you will no longer be the same person.

You cant be.

If you honestly read every page, if you do every exercise, if you take every test, if you follow every principle, you will go through an intellectual experience that will effect a radical change
in you.

For if you systematically increase your vocabulary, you will also sharpen and enrich your thinking; push back your intellectual horizons; building your self-assurance; improve your
facility in handling the English language and thereby your ability to express your thoughts effectively; and acquire a deeper understanding of the world in
general and of yourself in particular.

Increase your vocabulary does not mean merely learning the definitions of large numbers of obscure words; it does not mean memorizing scores or unrelated terms. What it means–what it can
only mean–is becoming acquainted with the multitudinous and fascinating phenomena of human existence of which words are , obviously only the verbal descriptions.

Increasing your vocabulary–properly, intelligently, and systematically–means treating yourself to an all-round, liberal education.

And surely you cannot deny that such an experience will change you intellectually–

Will you have a discernible effect on your methods of thinking– on your store of information–on your ability to express your ideas–on your understanding of human problems.
