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 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.
