  • The Modern Scholar: A Way With Words Part III: Grammar for Adults

    Since others judge you by the way you speak, the intricacies of grammar, in fact, should not be relegated to the realm of fussy "guardians of the language," but are rather essential clues all can employ to communicate more exactly. In such a light, this course forms an invaluable guide for everyone from all fields of interest.

    Johanna says: "GREAT!!!! I learned and was entertained."
    "Excellent Course"
    Overall

    This course contains an enjoyable and interesting series of lectures on English grammer. It is narrated by its author, Professor Michael Drout, who explains the history of English grammer; and its rules, conventions and contradictions in a thoroughly humouress, light-hearted and logical manner. I would recommend this course to anyone seeking to improve their use and knowledge of English grammer, whether or not you may be a native English speaker or learning English as a second language.

    One enemy spy knows the secret of the Allies' greatest deception, a brilliant aristocrat and ruthless assassin - code name: "The Needle" - who holds the key to the ultimate Nazi victory.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "Just OK by Follett Standards"
    "Excellent Book -- Dreadful Narration"
    Overall

    This is another excellent book by Ken Follet, which should earn a five-star rating. Regretably, the rating is marred by the dreadful narration. The book is set in England and the main narrator is an American, trying to pull of an English accent, which sounds comical, particularly when his accent sounds like a cross between an Irishman, Scotsman and Englishman. The accents of the other characters are equally bad parodies of the various regional and class accents of the British Isles. The production is poor too, since the various "voices" have obviously been recorded at different times and places and spliced into the appropriate parts of the story.
