I prefer this audiobook

I got the paperback and audiobook, but I prefer audiobooks more. I can just listen in my car. Overall, the teaching of this book is helpful, some words I don’t understand. I would recommend a more advanced English speaker. 5/5.

2 Title: better than Learning from school

This help remains natural at communicating in diverse situations. Would like more advanced vocabulary and some more out of the ordinary situations but perhaps that's for another level of proficiency? This is worth listening to. Great job Whitney!

No drills, no specific examples. Useless.

This book presents only methods to improve fluency, no drills, samples or nothing.
The methods are already widely known and nothing new. Just garbage. Don't waste your time and money.

I'm slowly mastering it.

The author was able to challenge me to master the stress in the correct syllables for me to sound like a native English speaker. I am amazed how interesting it is learning it the right way!

an accessible, go-to grammar piece

An accessible, go-to grammar book that emphasizes the importance of writing to an intended readership. After studying this book for few days, I can’t say I’m already the best, but I did make some improvements and made some realizations of the words I’ve been using wrong.
