Discover Vocabulary Illuminated

SUPERIOR SECONDARY ENGLISH DESIGN

Standard vocabulary books merely introduce users to new words and phrases (e.g. ‘detrimental’ means ‘harmful’, ‘pellucid’ means ‘easily understood’). However, transient exposure does not lead to deep learning—words encountered are soon forgotten, and even if some memory remains, ‘new’ words are often left in obscure recesses of the mind, never retrieved and never applied.
