This world is fast becoming a global village. As we know, knowledge is power. Now that Taiwan is eager to join international trade organizations, our individual competitiveness must be strengthened with foreign language learning. None of us can afford to be out of date.
Let’s examine what language is, and how to improve your skills. In the English language, you’ll find six basic types of words. We need them all to communicate. Language is a structured set of characters, words, sentences, and letters that are used to clearly communicate something to other people. English is basically made up of nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and determiners. All are found in this dictionary. Other dictionaries may not present actual everyday communicative examples as deeply as this one does. The thematic grouping of words is quite valuable because that is the way we really think. This book give you controlled, meaningful practice. It will help you correct errors in your regular speech. All of us need to focus on forming our grammar and use sentence targets in context. Simple memorization won’t do.
