   Oxford Word Skills is a series of three books for students to learn and practise new vocabulary.
Each level contains 100 units of vocabulary presentation and practice, with a unit being 1-2 pages, depending on the size of the topic. New vocabulary is presented in manageable chunks, then immediately followed up with practice exercises, usually on the same page.
