9780224101370: English is Not Easy

A cheeky, sophisticated, and strikingly illustrated guide that leaves generic English reference books in the dust
 
When prominent Barcelona-based illustrator Luci Gutiérrez found herself tuning out in English class, she used her love of drawing to help retain what she’d learned. Ditching the kind of bland and useless phrases that fill most English textbooks, Gutiérrez uses whimsical characters, cheeky dialogue, and even insults to bring vocabulary, grammar, and usage topics to life.
 
Nearly forty-seven million people in the United States speak a language other than English at home, and even most native speakers struggle with subtle distinctions, such as when to use “whether” as opposed to “if.” (For example: I wonder whether I should have added a little more poison to his tea.) Already published to wide acclaim abroad, English Is Not Easy is sure to delight grammar mavens and students of English in America.

Descripción Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. A quirkily illustrated, brilliantly risque, but thoroughly practical, guide to the peculiarities of one of the trickiest languages on earth, for (strictly adult) students of English as a foreign language and native speakers alike Do you know when to use whether opposed to if? For exampIe, I wonder whether I should have added a little more poison to his tea? Or where to place the comma in a conditional sentence? English is Not Easy presents the intricacies of the English language in a whimsically illustrated guide that is appealing even to the grammar averse. If all other language and grammar guides leave you snoring, look no further. English Is Not Easy doesn t offer run-of-the-mill phrases about extreme sports and atmospheric conditions that you ll learn in a generic English textbook. This book offers vocabulary for situations the reader will actually find themselves in. Need an insult? Those are here, too, and imbecile is the kindest of the bunch. From `to be to complicated verb tenses and seemingly nonsensical idioms, Luci s characters, cheeky dialogue, and playful sentences bring the vocabulary, grammar and usage to life. For those who haven t brushed up on grammar since primary school or non-native English speakers looking to improve conversation, English Is Not Easy is a fresh and infectious guide to revisiting the rules with striking illustrative adventure along the way.
