Advanced spoken English
Advanced Spoken English is intended both for writing practice as well as oral practice in English, either in the classroom or in the language laboratory. The text has been planned for use by students who have completed at least a basic course in English. In this book, besides exercises on grammar, oral class or laboratory work is initiated through four-line conversations, and further practice in exercise form is derived from or allied with the conversations.
The exercises for situational conversations are based on key sentences from conversations. At the beginning of each exercise, the line (or lines) in the conversations from which the key sentence was taken, is noted.
All the exercises in Advanced Spoken English are designated in programmed fashion: all cue words or sentences are presented at the left of the page and all the expected responses or “answers” are given at the right. The symbols (?) and (??) have been used to indicate that the cue is a repetition of a preceding question.
There is no doubt that there are innumerable books on grammar and conversation available in the market, but the fact cannot be denied that in spite of the best books available, some students don’t understand the rules of the language without the help of an expert English teacher. This book has specifically been designed to fill this void and is meant for those who find the intricacies of grammar difficult to grasp. Answers to all the unsolved exercises have been provided at the end thereby enabling the students as well as general readers to evaluate their understanding.
