Warning: This book contains content not suitable for children. Learning English through jokes has many practical advantages. They can be used to learn both spoken and written English because the jokes contain both descriptions of a situation and casual daily conversational English. Another advantage in learning English through jokes is that it helps you understand the culture as well, as they contain situations that reflect on the way of life and mindset of a society, and use casual English like a real native English speaker would, unlike traditional English teaching books that may use phrases that sound too constructed or are too outdated and no longer used. Learn English with Funny Jokes consists of 99 funny jokes by Gary Kim, recorded by a professional voice actor. Each joke will make you roll over with laughter, so you can enjoy the jokes and study English at the same time. If you are learning English as a second language, Learn English with Funny Jokes is a great way to improve your listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. It is also great for learning and practicing conversation patterns for daily use. Also included in this book are English sentences for practicing writing, ranging from simple everyday phrases to surprisingly tricky sentences, and conversation patterns that use the same word or phrase in different, practical forms. 1.

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.

What does the name ´´Agatha Christie´´ mean? To many people, it means a book about a murder mystery - a ´´whodunnit´´. ´´I´m reading an Agatha Christie,´´ people say. ´´I´m not sure who the murderer is. I think it´s….´´ But they are usually wrong, because it is not easy to guess the murderer´s name before the end of the book. But who was Agatha Christie? What was she like? Was her life quiet and unexciting, or was it full of interest and adventure?Was there a mystery in her life, too? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Clare Wille.

This is the third book in the very popular series. Many intermediate English speakers tend to get trapped using the same vocabulary over and over again. They often only speak about subjects they know the words for and avoid anything outside of their ´comfort zone´.

For this, you will need to learn the special vocabulary connected to these topics. What are the benefits of using this book? You will learn 182 useful words and phrases. You will be able to speak about 12 new topics with confidence. This will greatly improve your English conversational ability. All new words and phrases are introduced in fun and interesting articles and stories. So you will learn naturally. Everything is explained in easy to understand English, so you can get used to ´thinking in English´. There are hundreds of sample sentences to help you understand how these words and phrases are used in everyday language. For each topic I have listed useful television shows and youtube channels to help you practice your new vocabulary.
