34 weekly lessons. Regular lessons present 20 new words, 5 review words, and 4 sections of exercises.

Part "A" acquaints the student with some Latin or Greek roots and their appearance in our words. Etymologies are studied with the help of a dictionary included in the back of the textbook. Near the end of the course, a few lessons teach words that show Spanish, German, and French influences in our language. Part "B" of each lesson exercises building words with affixes. Part "C" practices phonics details taught in earlier courses of this series. Part "D" is a series of studies on semantics and the history of the English language. Review lessons are spaced after 5 lessons, reviewing all the new words and skills. The answer key is in the teacher's guide.
