English from Afar
How to learn English the less painful way
by Bruce Peterson

English From Afar is a light-hearted look at the ways to succeed in learning English as a second language. Laced with colourful tales from Bruce’s 25-year experience as an Englishman abroad it presents the reader with a witty and entertaining easy read.

There are no pages of exercises, simply by reading you will grow your vocabulary and understanding. But it also does something few other books do - explain when and why accuracy is needed as well as helping the reader to understand that far more important is the idea of communicating the meaning than just speaking English words.

Bruce’s book focuses on how to make acquiring English as a second language a lot more fun than you ever imagined. He also tries to put the language in context so that the reader gains a real insight into the bizarre and complex people the British are. It’s a book with something for everyone no matter if they are beginners or advanced speakers. Bruce’s style makes it both informative and an enjoyable read at the same time.

The focus is on how to acquire English in as painless way possible, it is stuffed with good advice, tips and tricks and it also goes beyond the class-room enabling your life time of discovery in English. It really shows you that learning English doesn’t have to be a boring task.

What’s more, how to manage fear and to tap into the vast resource the English are themselves when you feel like you are struggling. It really does give that extra little bit when you feel “why am I doing this”! Early Malaysian reviewers have all said that they regard this as a definitive text dealing with the issues they want to know about. See attached supplementary Test Subject reaction.
