LO QUE NO EXISTE, 2012

Resumen del eBook

You Can Do It! es el resultado de la observación, durante numerosos años, de los fallos más frecuentes fundamentalmente en el ámbito de la pronunciación- que cometen los españoles cuando hablan en inglés. Su autora, Helena Kurçab, bajo el sello de The English Coach (Jacci), ha dedicado años a la identificación de estos erro res y a la plasmación de trucos para que las personas hispanohablantes adquieran la soltura que necesitan para hablar y pronunciar bien en inglés. El libro incluye un CD con audio grabado por la propia autora.En You Can Do It!, la profesora y coach- ofrece una serie de sencillas reglas que ilustra con frases llamativas y fáciles de recordar. La palabra umbrella (paraguas) es una de las que más se vale la autora para enseñar su método. Casi todas las personas la dicen bien. Sin embargo, cuando utilizan la letra u en otros contextos la pronuncian mal. ¿Por qué? Según la autora, porque nunca han dedicado tiempo a pensar y extrapolar los sonidos de las vocales.Todo estudiante de inglés y así lo plasma y explica la autora en el primer capítulo de su libro (y primer paso de su método)- debe estar animado para conseguir su objetivo y asegurarse de:-Conocerse a sí mismo y ser capaz de verbalizar el auténtico objetivo y motivo por el que quiere aprender inglés.-Creerse y autoconvencerse de que lo puede conseguir.-Conocer lo que realmente va a necesitar para alcanzar el objetivo marcado. Teniendo en cuenta criterios siempre claros y específicos.El segundo capítulo del libro se centra en los trucos para aprender a pronunciar bien. El tercer paso del método se centra en las claves para identificar nuestros errores, asimilarlos y poder subsanarlos.La autoraNacida en Escocia, de padre polaco y madre escocesa, Heléna Kurçab (The English Coach) creció en un hogar en el que el inglés no era la lengua nativa de sus dos padres ni de algunos de sus amigos. Siendo aún una niña su familia se trasladó a vivir a Australia, donde la autora siguió conviviendo con inmigrantes de numerosos países europeos que deseaban aprender el lenguaje de su nuevo país de adopción. Estas vivencias crearon en ella una compresión y empatía innata sobre el modo en el que se aprenden los idiomas, que creció junto a la pasión personal de Heléna Kurçab por el inglés. En el año 2005 la autora decidió cerrar el negocio de consultoría que tenía en Australia y se trasladó a vivir a España (Madrid). Desde ese momento ha centrado su vida profesional en ayudar a todos aquellos que desean llegar al punto más alto de su nivel de inglés, ayudándoles a dar el salto que realmente necesitan para que hablen bien inglés. La gente y su potencial son mi pasión. Así resume Heléna Kurçab su anhelo y particular forma de vida.Incluye enlace descargable audio formato MP3 ... Leer resumen completo

Joe Bucket is a hard-bitten English ex-pat who first came to Pattaya when it was little more than a fishing village. He is an ordinary guy who likes beer, football and fishing -- and loves Thai women even more.But with the great changes the city has undergone, perhaps it was inevitable that, after twenty-five years, even th e fantastic had become familiar. That was until Joe met old Ron, a retired merchant seaman in a wheelchair who was not long for this world. The shrewd old seafarer persuaded Joe to carry out a last task for him, and the next thing the Pattaya old-hand knew, he was bound for Sihanoukville in Cambodia to search for a Khmer bar-girl the fading seafarer desperately needed to find.Accompany Joe Bucket from Pattaya to Cambodia and on his adventures among the streets, bars, brothels and beaches of Sihanoukville and let him introduce you to the gangsters, hookers and other misfits he meets along the way."Visa Run"is written with humour and feeling and insight into the steamy worlds of Pattaya and Sihanoukville.The eBook is also filled with information of the sort that you certainly will not find in conventional travel guides. ...

A LAND LIKE NONE YOU KNOW (EBOOK)
PATRICK FORSYTH

Resumen del eBook

Burma (or Myanmar as it is now called) is in the news for all the wrong reasons. It has been ruled for many years by a ruthless, repressive junta, it suffers regular earthquakes and the cyclone of May 2008 left more than a hundred thousand people injured, homeless or dead.Yet this is a magical place: a country of contrasts with a rambunctious history and a culture that is both awesome and fascinating.Largely on a whim, prompted by sitting next to the neighbour from hell on a long-haul flight, the author decides to visit Mandalay, the Golden City foreseen by ancient Buddhist prophesies. Despite controversy there are campaigns suggesting you do not travel to Burma on the grounds that doing so supports the government - he makes a trip, flying to Bangkok and on to Yangon (previously Rangoon) and makes much of the journey on the river cruiser Road to Mandalay sailing along the famous Ayeyarwady. Along the way he encounters taxis pulled by oxen; rings the largest bell in the world; learns how to wear a skirt, the difference between a stupa and a pagoda and why florescent pink tiles are used in temples.In this lively and light-hearted account of his journey he watches the best sunset in the world on the plains of Bagan, and as the sun sinks behind the towers of pagodas stretching in countless numbers to the horizon, concludes that this wonderful country is worthy of everyones attention, and perhaps help too. ...
