--------------------- SAMPLE CONTENT FROM THE BOOK ---------------------
I told you in Supplement 6 that, if you are to become fluent in speaking about a wide range of topics, it is not enough that you know a lot of words and have a clear idea of their meanings and other features. And I told you this: What’s needed is that you should have complete mastery over the core words in English. But this is only possible if you have the experience of handling the core words again and again, that too, by relating them to frequently-discussed topics. In Supplement 6, I gave you carefully chosen collections of word groups that have to do with six topics. In this Supplement, I’m going to give you word groups that have to do with seven other important topics:
1). Good and bad.
2). Farming, Agriculture & Gardening.
3). Sports & Games.
4). Essential Computer English.
7). Building and home.
Let’s go straight for the word groups. As usual, utter each word group aloud several times, so that you and your organs of speech become familiar with them. Remember this: What’s needed is not just to learn the content of these word groups; what’s needed is to train your organs of speech with them.
Here we go:
