5.0 out of 5 stars Colloquial English Oct. 8 2007
By Menard Mugumo - Published on
Colloquial English is the ultimate solution for the learner of the English Language, especially those who wish to perfect spoken English proficiency. The book presents numerous examples in addition to language points and idioms, all exploring the many rich ways the English language can be used to communicate fine shades of meaning. Finally, the Life and Living sections of the book take the learner through real life situations narrated in vivid vocabulary.

Probably the most important quality of Colloquial English is that, although basic knowledge of the language is assumed, it is very simplified and accessible to all learners - a crucial requirement for learning!
5.0 out of 5 stars TEFL english textbook May 11 2012
By Mr. F. Awaleh - Published on
in my opinion this is the best TEFL textbook. designed for adult learners and all the dialogues in the book are also on 2 cd's.
even good for those whose first language is english and wish to improve their grammar, verb conjugation in particular.
i hope this mini review was helpful.
