Barron's Painless English for Speakers of Other Languages, 2nd Edition
By Jeffrey Strausser and José Paniza
Titles in Barron's extensive Painless Series are written for learners who find the subjects unusually difficult and confusing--or in many cases, just plain boring. Barron's Painless Series authors' main goal is to clear up students' confusion and perk up their interest by emphasizing the intriguing and often exciting ways in which they can put each subject to practical use. Most of these books take a light-hearted approach to their subjects, often employing humor, and always presenting fun-learning exercises that include puzzles, games, and challenging "Brain Tickler" problems to solve. Both ESL students and teachers of ESL courses have found this book’s previous edition extremely helpful, especially in the way it anticipates and answers students’ most frequently asked questions about correct American English usage. The new second edition is better than ever.
Barron’s is taking Painless to the next level: FUN! Sealed inside your copy of the book, you’ll find a code that gives you access to a FREE app. Simply key in that code on your iPhone, iTouch, iPad or Android device, and you download a fun-to-play arcade game challenge that will reinforce your skill in mastering English!
