Do you want to have fun while learning English? Do you want to move from intermediate to advanced English? This is the second book in the very popular 150 Really Useful English Phrases series. After years of teaching intermediate students who never seemed to improve, I decided to find out what the problem was. Essentially, intermediate students get stuck because learning at this stage is a different type of learning than at the beginner stage. You have mastered the grammar and the basic vocabulary, but most textbooks just carry on like nothing has changed. What you need at the intermediate stage is not just more dry grammar and lists of words; you need to be exposed to as much ´´real´´ English as possible. This will help you start understanding what people actually say and not just ´´textbook´´ English. It will also help you to naturally get a feel for the language. Every new phrase is introduced in the real context of a short story or an article. So, by having fun and listening to something interesting, you will be learning naturally rather than having to force yourself to study. It´s a simple fact that if you are having fun, you will learn quicker and more easily. This book is 100 percent in English, with no help from your native language. This will help you to do what advanced speakers can do, and that is: think in English. This series of books is an excellent way to be exposed to ´´real everyday English phrases´´, but with the guidance of clear explanations and examples in simple English. Basically, it uses simple language to introduce more complex phrases. All of the phrases in this book are in common use and are the key to unlocking fluency. I have only included phrases that I have heard recently in conversation or on the radio or television. If it is in this book, it is for everyday use. ungekürzt. Language: English.

The book is designed to teach students to speak English at an intermediate level. The volume contains 20 short stories and special training drills based on the speech plasma method. This volume will enable foreign students of English to feel more comfortable with the language at an advanced level. The book is a collection of stories told by people in an everyday conversational manner. The stories are accounts of incidents or ideas that the people interviewed consider interesting or entertaining. They are not intended as great works of literature, rather as examples of people using their language naturally. The stories are the sort of tales you might hear in a pub or at a party - reflections on anything from weather and inquisitive neighbors to a passion for music and how it can help handicapped children. At times amusing, surprising, entertaining, or simply hard to believe, they are all related in the kind of natural, informal style that language learners so often wish to imitate. This collection will help show you how to do just that. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Alistair Brown. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/030952de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

More Stories for English is a collection selected with a pedagogical interest in mind... for new English speakers to listen to in a both interesting and progressive way. It follows Stories for English for developing English speakers. Most learners of English never make it to books or even stories. They either use or don´t use their command of English to some extent in the course of their jobs and leave it at that. All the same, teachers regularly get requests for books from their students, and here is a good start. Training people over the years has shown me the need for a carefully chosen selection that would motivate - while encouraging - learners to take their command of English beyond this and keep learning while enjoying the stories the way they did with songs and music in Singin´ to English. These stories are for students and trainers, teachers and learners alike, and more and more are being recorded. The stories featured here offer readability and listenability from a fairly early level up. They start with a short, easy repetitive pattern and evolve and evolve into more challenging, longer stories. Listeners will step up their skills without really pulling and stretching. ungekürzt.
