"Academic Word Power" helps students master the 570 most common words used in academic texts, as chosen from the respected Academic Word List. When students add this vocabulary to what they learn in a beginning ESL course, they will be able to comprehend 90% of the terms in texts across disciplines. Focusing on the most common words motivates students and allows instructors to take the guesswork out of choosing and researching vocabulary. The texts appeal to both native and non-native speakers and can be used in ESL, Developmental English, and high school English programs.
