Best of all, the videos have transcripts, so you can read what the speakers are saying as well as listen to them. If you register, you can also download the videos and watch them on your iPod or cell phone.

Learning Vocabulary: The Academic Word List

The Academic Word List contains 570 word families which were chosen because they appear often in a wide range of college textbooks. These are not the 570 most common words in English; they are the ones you will encounter most often while reading in college. They're also very common in newspapers, magazines, and on the internet. If you want to improve your vocabulary, this is a very good place to start.
