+5 for stories but -4 word selection I enjoyed the humerous plays - great writing/acting - and agree that these are words you need to know, but I'd assume you already do unless English is a 2nd lang. If you don't know Technology, Perceive, Compound, Drudgery, Implore, Tinge, Badger, Realm, indiscriminate, (some of the 17 target words from the 1st play, act 1), then this would likely be a good tape for you. Many idioms are also covered. Typical level of difficulty are the 3 from the 2nd play, "cold feet", "keep a stiff upper lip", and "look a gift horse in the mouth". One or two words per story are at a more difficult level like prognosticate, nefarious, pique, but why endure all the definitions of elementary words/idioms when WordBuilders is available? Tip to authors: Lose the idioms, introduce only 7 or 8 words per act, and select more advanced words. Your stories were the best!
