Book Description: This popular vocabulary-building program, previously available in audio cassette tape format, is now being issued on compact discs. Based on Murray Bromberg and Melvin Gordon’s bestselling classroom book, 1100 Words You Need to Know, this program presents seven humorous dramatizations designed to build students’ word power while preparing them for the SAT, ACT, and ESL tests. Dramatized stories include those of a hapless football team, a private eye, a chef with an accident-
prone cooking show, and others. All stories keep their listeners amused while they introduce words and word meanings in the context of informal conversations. A 32-page booklet lists the words-to-learn from each dramatization and provides brief definitions for them all.
