    "Unsurpassed Audio Entertainment Part 2"

    I found this one better than the first as it explores a vital subject in English: how to communicate effectively. In my humble opinion it should be played to every schoolchild & migrant to our shores as it details how to clearly transmit ideas, without mispronunciation & sloppy use of language. This episode covers elocution, accents, voice control & delivery & outlines how to educate yourself in better speech patterns.

    P.S. See 'Fry's English Delight Complete Series 2' if you want to see the review of the full product.
