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.
