Helpful and interesting lesson with great English!

Would you listen to English, Conversational Topics, Book 3 again? Why?

I will gladly listen this e-book again. I found it very useful for improvement of my English skills. Text is quite interesting and narrator's accent is awesome, genuine British. It's covering many different areas of day-to-day life, so there are a lot of different words and expressions I can use in day-to-day conversational practice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is author. I liked the way she is describing her city, her building and items in her flat. All her story is easy to understand, her interests are wide and her thinking is quite unusual.

Have you listened to any of Vivien Granham’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This Vivien's Granham's narration is first I encountered. Her voice reminded me my English colleagues, same awesome pronunciation.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I would say that story in this book is pretty smooth. As I mentioned above, it's interesting to listen as author's world view is wide, easy to see that he has broad life experience and knowledge different people's cultures.<br/>The most important point of this book is to teach you spoken English and it perfectly does it.

Any additional comments?

I'm glad I got this e-book and listened it. It helps a lot in improvement of my English skills. Will be glad to continue with other ones. <br/>I'd like to say thank you to Vivien Granham and Alexander Pavlenko. Keep up an excellent work!
