Do you want to become more fluent in English? Do you want to understand everyday language and not just ´´textbook´´ English? I taught English for many years and saw that many students get stuck at the high beginner/intermediate stage. They learn the basics and then can´t move forward. This problem used to really frustrate me because I had lots of excellent students who were just stuck and eventually they would give up. I thought for a long time about what was wrong and then decided that it wasn´t that the student didn´t have ability but that what they were studying and how they were studying was not effective. I saw that even though they had good basic English they would read textbooks full of their native language (not English). I used to think, ´´Why are they reading all this German, Japanese, etc. about English and not just reading English instead?´´ I decided to see if I could fix this problem. I started assigning students homework like ´´watch this English drama with subtitles and then without´´ or ´´read a short article every night for a month´´. I found the results were amazing. My students started becoming much more fluent and confident. This convinced me that the best way to become fluent was to read or watch real English that was interesting to the students. So I started writing short stories using easy to understand English mixed with idioms and phrasal verbs that native English speakers use all the time. In this book I have added explanations in English so you don´t mix up English and your native language in your mind. I have also included easy to understand examples which I recommend you note down in your notebook so you can remember them easily. In my opinion, learning idioms, phrasal verbs, and useful phrases is the best way to move your English forward as you will be using the vocabulary that English speakers use every day. 1.

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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jus Sargeant.

Based on the Speech Plasma Method, this collection of stories on 50 topics will help foreign students of English go through the most vulnerable period of learning - pre-intermediate level. At this stage students do not see their progress clearly enough and often feel increasingly anxious and frustrated. All the 50 stories are accounts of Julia´s everyday life. Being a real person Julia tells her stories in a very natural way revealing her own style and manner, repeating the same grammatical structures and word combinations. As a result, students easily remember the stories, speaking more and more fluently. Fluency practice drills that accompany each topic accelerate the transition from pre-intermediate into intermediate level. These special Speech Fluency Drills are used to generate a super active area ´´speech plasma´´, thus producing all the necessary conditions for spontaneous, automatic speech. Once created in your mind, speech plasma acts as a stimulator for further language learning. The bigger and stronger your speech plasma grows, the more fluently you speak, the easier it is to absorb new words and grammar rules, the faster you read, and the better you understand oral texts. 1.
