It will have few, if any, rivals in the English language' Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury, Guardian 'A prodigious, thrilling, masterclass of a history book' John Cornwell, Financial Times 'Essential reading for those enthralled by Christianity and for those enraged by it' Melvyn Bragg, Observer, Books of the Year 'Magnificent ... a sumptuous portrait, alive with detail and generous in judgement' Richard Holloway, The Times Diarmaid MacCulloch is Professor of the History of the Church at Oxford University.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is Volume 1-3 of the very popular series 150 Really Useful English Phrases.Do You Feel Stuck in the Intermediate English Level? Do you want to break out and start improving quickly?Then this is the perfect book to help you move up to the advanced level and start using everyday English fluently. What made me want to write this book?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. However, what you need at the intermediate stage is not just more dry grammar and lists of vocabulary, but to be exposed to as much 'real' English in as many 'real-life' situations as possible. This will help you start to understand what people are actually saying and not just 'textbook' English. It will also help you to naturally 'get a feel' for the language. Because I couldn't find a book that introduced everyday English phrases in a fun and engaging way I decided to write one myself. How will this book help you?Every new phrase is introduced in the real context of a short story or an article. So by having fun and reading 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 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 so you are eased into a more advanced level. All of the phrases in this book are in common use and are the key to unlocking fluency. I have only included phrases which I have heard recently in conversation or on the radio or television. If it is in this book it is in everyday use.So, if you are sick of being stuck and want to improve in a fun and engaging way, please press the buy button on the top right of this page to get started today.

Berlin Alexanderplatz
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The inspiration for Rainer Werner Fassbinder's epic film and that The Guardian named one of the "Top 100 Books of All Time," Berlin Alexanderplatz is considered one of the most important works of the Weimar Republic and twentieth century literature. Berlin Alexanderplatz, the great novel of Berlin and the doomed Weimar Republic, is one of the great books of the twentieth century, gruesome, farcical, and appalling, word drunk, pitchdark. In Michael Hofmann's extraordinary new translation, Alfred Döblin's masterpiece lives in English for the first time. As Döblin writes in the opening pages: The subject of this book is the life of the former cement worker and haulier Franz Biberkopf in Berlin. As our story begins, he has just been released from prison, where he did time for some stupid stuff; now he is back in Berlin, determined to go straight. To begin with, he succeeds. But then, though doing all right for himself financially, he gets involved in a set-to with an unpredictable external agency that looks an awful lot like fate. Three times the force attacks him and disrupts his scheme. The first time it comes at him with dishonesty and deception. Our man is able to get to his feet, he is still good to stand. Then it strikes him a low blow. He has trouble getting up from that, he is almost counted out. And finally it hits him with monstrous and extreme violence.
