The text is included with each recording.
Each word has a simple definition and a dialog.The definitions for these examples reflect common uses of the words and are included for the convenience of the listeners but are not taken from a dictionary because of copyright laws.
The words chosen for these podcasts are taken from the Academic Word List to provide vocabulary practice for students who are studying English as a second language. For more information about the AWL, see: http://language.massey.ac.nz/staff/awl/awlinfo.shtml
