Introduction For the student

For the teacher

Welcome to Just Vocabulory Vou can use thisbook with other students and a teacher, or you can work alone with it. In this book you will find 16 units. Each unit has a section on useful vocabulary (with pictures, texts and explanations). There is then a section on language 'functions' (that means conversational English for use in many different situations). In the 'functions' sections you will learn how to say things. There is an accompanying CD to help you with the many dialogues and pronunciation exercises in the book. Where you see the symbol (,,,")) it means that you can listen to the CD. Vou will also find an Audioscript at the back of the book which containsall the language on the CD. When you see this symbol ( ) it means that the answers to the practice exercises are in theAnswer key at the back of the book. Vou can check youranswers there. We hope that this book helps you progress in English, and, above all, that you enjoy using it.

This book is part of a series designed to be used alone or to supplement any course book you may be using. Each book in the series specialises in either language skills or aspects of the English language. It can be used either in class or by students worki ng on their own. Just Vocabulary consists of 16 units. Each unit is divided into two sections. In the first section, vocabulary for a va riety of topic areas is introduced and practised. Topics include jobs and work, public transport, and giving and receiving. There are also units on two-word nouns and phrasa l verbs etc. The second section concentrates on functiona l areas such as expressing preference, asking for and giving advice, and apologising. All thedialogue and pronunciation material has been recorded onto the CD, and there is an Audioscript at the back of the book. Students will be able to use the book without needing explanation or guidance on the part of the teacher, and they can check their work in the com prehensive Answer key at the back of the book. However, the units arealso highly appropriate for work in class. We hope you find this book a real asset and that you will also try the other books in the series: Just Reading and Writing, Just Grammar and Just Ustening andSpeaking.
