Publisher's Summary

We all know this problem: Learning a new language can be difficult and frustrating at times. You spend hours with the book and CD set, or watching foreign movies, and when you open your mouth it feels like it's done no good. But what you really want is to build your confidence and skills evenly, with fun and varied exercises that leave you ready to face all learning situations. Fluency Made Achievable introduces the listener to one of the secrets of long-term success in language learning: the balance of core learning skills: listening, reading, speaking, and writing.
Written by a language tutor who has experienced her fair share of language learning successes and frustrations, Fluency Made Achievable will inspire listeners to try out new types of exercises with fresh motivation. The exercise suggestions make it easy for learners to go straight to practicing core skills in a targeted way. This entertaining audiobook is guaranteed to help every independent language learner and language tutor evaluate their progress so far, and with the handy 3-week Study Plan this book can make a difference to your learning routines in less than a month.

read, don't listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

NO, it needs to be read and annotated and jotted about.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

What about Kirsten Hintner and Kerstin Hammes ’s performance did you like?

I didn't really like it. A little breathy. But mainly, this book needs to be read. There is no reason to listen to it while taking notes, just buy the book!

What did you learn from Fluency Made Achievable that you would use in your daily life?

I like the activities, and the organization she presents. Anyone wanting to learn a language needs more, new, and effective activities to keep up the pace. This should be used as a reference book; it is boring and ineffectual to try to listen to it as a story or documentary.

Any additional comments?

Buy the hard copy, mark it up, use the principles and activities, skip the parts you don't care about or already understand, flip through it again and again, and use it as a reference book. This book contains lots of good, clear ideas to help you learn any language. Teachers and students can benefit from these ideas.

Great Book for ESL learners.

Book is really great a lot if tips to implore your English, but I can't tell the same of audible, because it's impossible download to more than one device. XXX FOR AUDIBLE.
