Based on the Speech Plasma Method, the book is designed to teach students to speak English at intermediate level. The volume contains twenty short stories and special training drills. This volume will enable foreign students of English to feel more comfortable with the language at a more advanced level. The book is a collection of stories told by native speakers of English in everyday conversational manner. The stories are accounts of incidents or ideas which 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 that you might hear in a pub or at a party, reflections on anything from weather and inquisitive neighbours 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 which language learners so often wish to imitate. This collection will help show you how to do just that. The stories are told in simple, everyday colloquial style. Audiobook version of the volume is available on Audible.
