Focus on Vocabulary 1: Bridging Vocabulary fills the gap between high-frequency and lower-frequency vocabulary-teaching mid-frequency vocabulary and preparing intermediate to high-intermediate students for the kinds of words found in novels, newspapers, films and social and workplace settings.
Focus on Vocabulary 2: Mastering the Academic Word List uses thorough recycling of academic words and well-crafted exercises to introduce high-intermediate and advanced students to the vocabulary they need for academic and test-taking success.
