 English Survival Kit

 

I’ve been an English teacher for about 10 years. How to let students grasp the language in Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing is what I’m always doing. I’d like to use all tools I can find to help them. One of the tools includes Englishsurvialkit, an ebook related to Oral English.

According to linguists, people learn foreign languages by remembering phrases than words or sentences. Based on this fact, I have created this book to help you speak English in a short period of time. Most of the people are familiar with many words, but they don’t know how to talk. Their ability to form sentences is limited due to the inadequate number of phrases.

Everyday Survival Kit for English Learners includes more than 100 situational conversations with many common phrases. You can use these phrases in all the situations that you encounter everyday. The purpose of this book is to help you communicate effectively.

It’s a great way to practice on how to communicate effectively on your own. Just practice few conversations at a time. Role-play at home or in a place you choose. Have fun with it. I can guarantee that you can keep this book as a reference. You can refer to this book whenever you encounter any situations where you had difficulty talking. 

Here is one letter to the author:

Dear Sharmila,
I’m writing to express my appreciation towards your helpful tips on your Everyday Survival Kit for English Learners, book. I was born in Korea, and English is my second language. I only took English as one subject at school. I can write English, but it was very hard to talk in English. Your book helped me to talk better. I want to thank you for the great book that you published.
Sincerely,
Dong lee   

Now is the Right Time to Start Speaking English Confidently!

 Here is another letter to the author:

Dear Author,
My name is Seda Samet and I am a student. Your e-book is great and helps me to talk in English. I take this printout version when we travel to different English speaking countries. It was really helpful. I not only learnt how to talk to new people, but also the culture in English speaking countries. My parents can’t speak English, so they always expected me to learn English. So when I went to London with my parents, I took your book with me wherever I went. It was a great help.
Thank again for your great book.
Sincerely,
Seda.

Inspirational Kids’Stories

 Read Books to Child 

I’m a mother of 4-year-old daughter. Every night, I am asked to tell a story in the bed by my little daughter. I bought a lot of books which cost me a lot of money. Recently I found an ebook called Inspirational Kids Stories quite good and useful for her education. I’d like to share it with you.

My daughter just loves these stories! The very first night I downloaded Inspirational Kids’ Stories I printed it out and my daughter and I had the time of our lives. She especially loves the story Magic Mom and also Treasures in the Attic. It used to take me ages to find the right kind of uplifting stories to share with my children. Now I’ve got 32 of them to choose from. Thanks Doctor Daryl … armed with these stories I’m confident my children are being exposed to the right kind of messages…

It’s an e-book full of inspiring, wholesome stories that will delight your children. Brimming with 32 individual stories, and gives you a whole smorgasbord of uplifting tales to choose from.

The stories teach children the values that seem to be lost in this new millennium. Once your children get to hear these stories they’ll be begging for more!
