My Book: 标准英语口语操练手册

speakingbook.jpgIt’s finally out! My handbook on practicing spoken English arrived today. The book describes a simple and effective way to practice your spoken English.

Thanks so much to 胡老师,蔡菁,and 郭霞 for all their help and support. Also thanks to David Hull, Connie Wu, Rob Neal, and Eric Jenican for allowing their articles to be included as practice materials.

(I’ll post a picture of the book once I can find one.)

Update: Thanks to Eric for finding a link to the book. I’ve posted a photo above. Eric also asked if I could provide a more detailed description of the book, which I will do soon.

  1. Hi,John.It’s so happy to hear the news.
    When I first joined your course,I thought if you published a book I must buy it. Now I could buy it.haha
    Maybe oneday you will meet me in the New Channel to ask for your signature.I’m serious!

  2. I am in the intern now.I remember I once mentioned it to you,right?
    This month I work in the operation room.I am very busy and tired everyday.
    From 9.4th my boyfriend and I will begin our innovation course,so we may meet that time.I hope that.

  3. I wonder whether there is a mistake about a word in your book.

    At page 91, there is a sentence “the average cashier” .I think it should be ” the ordinary cashier”.right?

  4. ccxixicc,

    Actually, it’s okay to use the word “average” in that way. It can have the meaning of “ordinary” or “normal”.

    There are some mistakes in the book, though, that we didn’t catch before going to press. Can you find the one on page 90? 😉

  5. Hey John. Andrew alerted me to your blog and book. Congratulations on being a published author. Very cool. And to think I knew you when….

  6. Hi John, I saw your pictures of Desperate Measures. They’re so funny. Thanks for your interesting and weird comedy.
    I’ll keep this secret for you, a great teacher.
