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.

Large print hardback edition of the first volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings, complete with fold-out map. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power -- the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring -- the ring that rules them all -- which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Now available in large print and impossible to describe in a few words, JRR Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail.

A Dynamic New Approach to Organizational Change Dialogic Organization Development is a compelling alternative to the classical action research approach to planned change. Organizations are seen as fluid, socially constructed realities that are continuously created through conversations and images. Leaders and consultants can help foster change by encouraging disruptions to taken-for-granted ways of thinking and acting and the use of generative images to stimulate new organizational conversations and narratives. This book offers the first comprehensive introduction to Dialogic Organization Development with chapters by a global team of leading scholar-practitioners addressing both theoretical foundations and specific practices.

Secret Session Speeches
Author: Sir Winston S. Churchill
Only a handful of times during World War II was the situation so dire that the House of Commons had to meet secretly—to keep its counsel from reaching the enemy. Five separate times during the war, between 1940 and 1942, Winston Churchill addressed the secret assembly. Those speeches are reproduced in this collection. Here, Churchill delivers his immediate reactions to the fall of France, the discovery of a vast enemy armada in the English Channel, and the fall of Singapore, which may have been the most heartbreaking and costly military failure of Churchill’s career. Readers can glean a startling intimate insight into Churchill’s thinking by noting the words and phrases he chose to omit as well as those he included. Originally published in 1945, Churchill’s words provide fascinating context to some of World War its most significant events—and still carry great weight and meaning today. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Sir Winston Churchill was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953 “for his mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.” Over a 64-year span, Churchill published over 40 books, many multi-volume definitive accounts of historical events to which he was a witness and participant. All are beautifully written and as accessible and relevant today as when first published. During his fifty-year political career, Churchill served twice as Prime Minister in addition to other prominent positions—including President of the Board of Trade, First Lord of the Admiralty, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Home Secretary. In the 1930s, Churchill was one of the first to recognize the danger of the rising Nazi power in Germany and to campaign for rearmament in Britain. His leadership and inspired broadcasts and speeches during World War II helped strengthen British resistance to Adolf Hitler—and played an important part in the Allies’ eventual triumph. One of the most inspiring wartime leaders of modern history, Churchill was also an orator, a historian, a journalist, and an artist. All of these aspects of Churchill are fully represented in this collection of his works. ABOUT THE SERIES Even decades later, long after the bloody conflict of World War II has been consigned to history, Sir Winston Churchill’s words to a country at war still have the power to thrill. Arguably the greatest orator of the last hundred years, Churchill was at his best when leading Britain in times of war—sometimes exhorting, sometimes pleading, sometimes energizing, and always inspiring. Rosetta Books offers a complete set of volumes of the wartime speeches for which Churchill was best known, presented in the original formats in which he authorized them for publication. Churchill’s oratory was cited by the Nobel Foundation in granting him the Nobel Prize for Literature. Ranging from the beginning of England’s brave stand against Hitler to the surrender of Japan and its aftermath, they bring a long and turbulent period in world history to vibrant life.
