Painless English for Speakers of Other Languages (Barron's Painless) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both ESL students and teachers of ESL courses have found the previous edition of Painless English for Speakers of Other Languages extremely helpful, especially in the way it anticipates and answers students' most frequently asked questions about correct American English usage. The new second edition is better than ever. All titles in Barron's Painless Series are being updated in new, improved editions, and they all feature access to brand-new subject-related arcade game apps that will appeal to students. Books in the Painless Series cover most classroom subjects, and include a variety of fun features for students who find the subjects difficult and confusing--or in some cases, just plain boring. Books--

  • Are written for middle school and high school students
  • Feature cartoon-style illustrations and humorous approaches to subject matter
  • Emphasize attention-catching ways students can put subjects to practical use
  • Challenge students with puzzles, games, and "Brain Tickler" problems to solve-- and now with access to a fun app learning game

    NOTE: The new apps features that are available with these revised titles can be downloaded on any iPhone, iTouch, iPad, or Android device. They add an extra element of fun to the teaching of each subject.

  • Synopsis:

    (back cover)

    Really. This won't hurt at all . . .

    The thought of having to learn

    English once turned brave

    students into cowards . . .

    but no more!

    THE PAIN VANISHES WHEN

    YOU TRANSFORM

    ENGLISH INTO FUN--

    The authors take you through all parts of speech--nouns, pronouns, verbs, modifiers, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. They also tell you how to improve your English vocabulary and pronunciation, and they give you tips on how to recognize silent letters and homophones. The book's final chapters coach you in written English, advancing from simple rules of punctuation and sentence structure to writing essays and stories. The authors' gradual, step-by-step approach makes the mastery of English a truly painless process--especially if your first language is other than English.
