Based on the Speech Plasma Method, this collection of stories on 50 topics will help foreign students of English go through the most vulnerable period of learning - pre-intermediate level. At this stage students do not see their progress clearly enough and often feel increasingly anxious and frustrated. All the 50 stories are accounts of Julia's everyday life. Being a real person Julia tells her stories in a very natural way revealing her own style and manner, repeating the same grammatical structures and word combinations. As a result, students easily remember the stories, speaking more and more fluently. Fluency practice drills that accompany each topic accelerate the transition from pre-intermediate into intermediate level. These special Speech Fluency Drills are used to generate a super active area "speech plasma", thus producing all the necessary conditions for spontaneous, automatic speech. Once created in your mind, speech plasma acts as a stimulator for further language learning. The bigger and stronger your speech plasma grows, the more fluently you speak, the easier it is to absorb new words and grammar rules, the faster you read, and the better you understand oral texts. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Melanie Binks. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/031277/bk_acx0_031277_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Based on the Speech Plasma Method, this volume is designed for students who can speak English at an elementary level but lack fluency, which makes them feel confused and frustrated. The book is aimed at the development of the learner's fluency in speech through fluency practice drills. The drills are similar to physical exercises that can be practiced regularly, repeated over and over again, concentrating either on their intensity and force or on rapidness and speed. The volume contains 40 dialogues and 120 fluency practice drills. Each dialogue is followed by three stories: Two of them are told by the participants of the dialogue, and the third one is a summary of the conversation narrated by a third person. The Speech Plasma Method uses special speech fluency drills to generate a super active area, speech plasma, thus producing all the necessary conditions for spontaneous, automatic speech. Once created in your mind, speech plasma acts as a stimulator for further language learning. The bigger and stronger your speech plasma grows, the more fluently you speak, the easier it is to absorb new words and grammar rules, the faster you listen, and the better you understand oral texts. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrew Johnson, Melanie Binks. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/052271/bk_acx0_052271_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Joshua Binks, a poor black boy growing up with his single mother set against the racial background of Southern America during the early 1930s, has a very vivid imagination in possessing a secret divine, as his life unfolds, and is seen through his innocent eyes and a pure heart of a child in infancy and youth. Joshua's world is inhabited by fictional characters of fairytale and make believe muses who come to life within Joshua's fantasy dream world, as it is this setting where we are led into Joshua's world of animated and colorful characters open to his bemusement, as Joshua also has a unique and mysteriously transcending connection that is tied to the trees that often whisper his name within this world, taking his mind into a place of fantasy. During his childhood, Joshua has an accident, which changes the course of his life and takes away his ability to communicate without stuttering and so adds to his disappointment and disadvantages in his life. As the events of Joshua's tragic life unfold, we are also led back and forth into his world of fantasy. Joshua also experiences racial prejudice and discrimination from his peers when he fails to enlist into the army and is made to work as a kitchen porter, although in his waking dreams where he relies upon the narrative of the stories that were once etched into his imagination, he is still very much frowned upon and looked down and treated unfairly. As a kitchen porter in the army, Joshua also becomes the concern and a friend to his fellow comrades and potential soldiers in the making, although they seem to pity his disposition. As his relationships begin to blossom amongst the elements of racial tension, it is under this climate that things begin to develop as Joshua is taken under the wing of a young Christian girl who attempts to teach him to read and write. But just when things appear to be progressing, once again, the racial tension boils over until there is a bitter feud involving this simple and naïve Joshua, which results in him trying to help his friend escape, and by doing so, he is made to be the victim of a tragic event.
