First we'll practice pronunciation by reading two short selections on topics from science and Us history. Then we'll do multiple exercises related to vocabulary from the reading. This will include word forms, words with multiple meanings, and the roots/prefixes/suffixes that are used to make various English words. There will also be sample test questions and testing tips. It would be helpful if you had a second device with an online dictionary.
