Based on the Speech Plasma method, this book is designed to teach students to speak English in a natural, conversational manner. This book includes personal stories narrated by 17 people from different parts of the United Kingdom, the USA, Ireland, Canada, and Australia. The volume is supplied with audio files. Our intention in recording this range of voices was neither to collect as many accents as possible nor to find the most typical or strongest accents. Rather, our aim was to illustrate a range of regional pronunciation in English. By listening to the audio, the listener will hear the differences in the way native speakers communicate in English and get an idea of how the language is spoken in such diverse places as London, New York, Manchester, and many other parts of the English-speaking world. Accents, Personal Stories is part of the Fluency Practice series designed to expose students to English as spoken by native speakers in a range of situations. This book, however, differs from the others in the series in that while the stories the speakers tell were also recorded and transcribed, they were not edited in order to rid them of unnecessary repetition or other grammatical errors. This gives the stories the authentic flavor of English as it is spoken. Accents, Personal Stories can be used for listening and reading practice, for identifying regional accents and analyzing various informal types of speech. The book can also be used for teaching and learning how to present a personal story in a concise and interesting form. 1. 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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Alistair Brown. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/030952/bk_acx0_030952_sample.mp3.

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.

Out of Practice is based around a large country medical practice, which proves to be a hotbed of rivalry, resentment and romance - and that´s just the doctors. Think James Herriot meets House. Meet married mum of two and successful GP Holly Graham as she relocates her family to join the team at The Practice at Beckerford, hoping to find the peaceful life she craves, despite the chaos that comes with her two-year-old twins and the troublesome state of her marriage. It will certainly be a challenge to keep her private and professional lives separate in such a tight-knit community. Her colleagues have their own issues to contend with. The gorgeous Dr. Dan Carter is struggling to focus on work, and the last thing he needs is any more stress; having his ambitious ex-girlfriend, Dr. Julia Channing, working alongside him isn´t really helping. Thankfully the rather delectable Dr. Taffy Jones is on hand to distract Holly from the escalating situation at home. Feisty octogenarian and resident celebrity Elsie Townsend is Holly´s favorite patient and saving grace. Elsie´s inspirational life lessons come at the perfect moment, as the practice is suddenly under threat of imminent closure, and Holly rediscovers her voice and her priorities just in time. 1.

The hilarious and heartfelt new novel from the best-selling author of Out of Practice! The Practice at Larkford has suddenly been thrust under the spotlight - and its nomination as an NHS Model Surgery is causing the team major headaches. Dr Holly Graham should be basking in the glow of her new romance with fellow doctor Taffy - but she is worried that the team is prioritising plaudits over patients, and her favourite resident, the irreverent and entertaining Elsie, is facing a difficult diagnosis. Add to that the chaos of family life, and the strain is starting to show. Dr Dishy Dan Carter´s obsession with work is masking unhappiness elsewhere - he can´t persuade girlfriend Julia to settle down. It´s only as Julia´s mother comes to stay that he realises what she has been hiding for so long. Alice Walker joins the team like a breath of fresh air, and her assistance dog, Coco, quickly wins everyone round - which is just as well, because Coco and Alice will soon need some help of their own. Can they pull together and become the dream team that the NHS obviously thinks they are?
