[Build Your Vocabulary (Coronet Instructional Films, 1948).]

Remember: “A good working vocabulary helps you to be more explicit.” I especially like the son-father vocabulary notebooks. I could watch this stuff all day, but then I wouldn’t have time to be working on my own personal vocabulary notebook.

John James deBoer, identified in the opening credits as a collaborator on this film, was an important figure in the history of academic freedom at the University of Illinois.
