Publisher's Summary

This book is volumes 1-3 of the very popular series 150 Really Useful English Phrases.
Do you feel stuck in the intermediate English level?
Do you want to break out and start improving quickly?
Then this is the perfect book to help you move up to the advanced level and start using everyday English fluently.
What made me want to write this book?
After years of teaching intermediate students who never seemed to improve, I decided to find out what the problem was. Essentially, intermediate students get stuck because learning at this stage is a different type of learning than at the beginner stage. You have mastered the grammar and the basic vocabulary, but most textbooks just carry on like nothing has changed. However, what you need at the intermediate stage is not just more dry grammar and lists of vocabulary but to be exposed to as much real English in as many real-life situations as possible. This will help you start to understand what people are actually saying and not just textbook English. It will also help you to naturally get a feel for the language. Because I couldn't find a book that introduced everyday English phrases in a fun and engaging way, I decided to write one myself.
How will this book help you?
Every new phrase is introduced in the real context of a short story or an article. So by having fun and listening to something interesting, you will be learning naturally rather than having to force yourself to study. It's a simple fact that if you are having fun, you will learn more quickly and easily.
This series of books is an excellent way to be exposed to real, everyday English phrases but with the guidance of clear explanations and examples in simple English. Basically it uses simple language to introduce more complex phrases, so you are eased into a more advanced level.

Really Userful

What made the experience of listening to 500 Really Useful English Phrases the most enjoyable?

The narrator did a wonderful job and it made it really run to listen to.

What other book might you compare 500 Really Useful English Phrases to and why?

This is a self help book but with lots of good narrations now it maybe a little basic for some but I like the examples that are given. I even shared this with my wife who just recently immigrated to the US and really loves how this audiobook because it gives her a better understanding of how the phrases works.

What about Jus Sargeant’s performance did you like?

Loved the accent, it definitely made the narration better.

Any additional comments?

The title says it all

Useful. I recommend it to friends who want to better their English out of the classroom or before, or while, adventuring into the realm of books, audio or not.
