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. 1.

How to master English This book is all three volumes of the very popular Master English in 12 Topics series. Once you master the vocabulary in this book you will have a very good foundation for speaking fluently about 36 everyday topics. This book is the ultimate stepping stone from intermediate to advanced English. Lots of 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´´. The problem with this is that even though they sound okay, they never really get any better. If you really want to improve, you need to be able to speak about a wide range of topics. 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 over 600 useful words and phrases. You will be able to speak about 36 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 example 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. Remember these are all topics that native speakers often talk about. They also tend to use specialized language, so it´s important that you know it, too. If you are in the intermediate level and are looking to really improve then this a great place to start. Get started on your journey to English fluency. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jus Sargeant. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/039324/bk_acx0_039324_sample.mp3.

Based on the Speech Plasma Method, this volume is designed for students who can speak English at an elementary level but lack fluency, which makes them feel confused and frustrated. The book is aimed at the development of the learner´s fluency in speech through fluency practice drills. The drills are similar to physical exercises that can be practiced regularly, repeated over and over again, concentrating either on their intensity and force or on rapidness and speed. The volume contains 40 dialogues and 120 fluency practice drills. Each dialogue is followed by three stories: Two of them are told by the participants of the dialogue, and the third one is a summary of the conversation narrated by a third person. The Speech Plasma Method uses special speech fluency drills 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 listen, and the better you understand oral texts. 1.
