Advanced Everyday English with audio CD is the second book in the Practical Everyday English series. It is written in exactly the same form as the first book and is also designed to improve the vocabulary of advanced students of English asa foreign language.
Once again, the focus is on advanced vocabulary, phrasal verbs and idioms. The book will be of special benefit to those readers with an advanced level of English who wish to become (or who already are) interpreters, translators or teachers of English, or who simply want to be able to speak and understand English at a very high level. In addition, people who need to read English language journals or converse in English on a daily basis, either in business or for pleasure, will find it very useful.ReviewThis book is so good. Just like the first one.
I am Spanish and have lived in the UK for many years. I think my English is OK, but there are still many things I miss when people talk or I know a word but I’m not sure how to use it. This book is much better than a dictionary and the CD is brilliant. Practical Everyday English (the first book) and this one are the best vocabulary books for advancedstudents that I have read.
Fantastic! MilagrosaAbout the AuthorSteven Collins was born in London in 1960 and has lived most of his life there.He qualified as a lawyer (solicitor) in 1987, having done a Master’s in Law at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. He then decided to make a complete change of career andwent into T.E.F.L (Teaching English as a foreign Language). Having lived and taught in Italy and Spain for a short while, he returned to London in 1993 to write the Practical Everyday English series of books for advanced students.
He has been a full time writer since 2008.Customer ReviewWhoever uses the series Practical / Advanced / High-Level Everyday English has the one and only choice: either to learn or to learn. Apart from the clear explanations and examples of every one of the words or phrases, as well as the dialogs and the exercises, there is a lot of repetition: when learning a new word or phrase, another one that has already been learned is recalled.
Needless to say, this only helps students memorize what they have been studying; it could hardly be more effective! Although the book is intended to be used by British ESL students, given that the vast majority of the words and phrases are used by either British or American English speakers, someone learning American English will find this book very useful too. In other words, this series is virtually a must for whomever wants to speak English fluently. Ernesto Simon, ESL Teacher
