Description

Some big news today here at VOA Learning English. We are adding new words to our 1,500-word Word Book. The first edition of the Word Book came out in 1962. Every now and then, we update it. Some words are added and some are taken away. We only decided to add these words after careful thought. We think they will be useful as your English improves. http://learningenglish.voanews.com/a/new-words-in-word-book-april-1/3263516.html
