I’m stoked to announce the launch of my second book, Walking English Dictionary 1 (WED 1). Here’s my pitch for the book: “Everyone admires someone who can speak another foreign language fluently, the more exotic the language the greater the wow. Everyone speaks English to some level but then there are those, who can speak to a level which simply knock the socks off you – meet the Walking (English) Dictionaries or W(E)DS for short.
What does it take to become a WED? Do you have to spend hours upon hours poring over and studying boring vocab lists? You could! You could also get the WED and enjoy your journey to becoming a WED. You see, the WED is a different type of vocab book. It storytells, puts life into the words/phrases and often a smile on your face aka ‘edutainment‘.
WED 1 covers topics ranging from ‘learning English‘ & ‘world of work‘, ‘people‘ to ‘politics‘ & ‘world of words‘ to ‘world of weird sounding words‘ to name but a few and is a compilation of previously published Teatime Titbit posts.
It is the first in a series of ‘lifelong-learning for less than a cuppa tea‘ collection of books priced at €2.99. What’s stopping you getting the WED, becoming a WED and knocking their socks off em??!! Go for it!!!!
