A must hear for English learners
Storytelling is about language, isn't it?
I started to hear this book on an English B2 level and I really have problems to find perfect books that match my level.
But this book is perfect. I only need to look up few English vocabularies. Eagerly I write each down into my litte book.
The special thing about "Stories for Work" is indeed, that it explains how to craft language.
Or do you know a better approach for learning English if you are based in an non English speaking country?
