A guide to connectors, verbs, expressions, and vocabulary for the Japanese ESL student.

Barnes &
David Petersen Storefront

Ideal for the intermediate to advanced Japanese ESL classroom, this guide helps students make sense of "media English" as found online, in newspapers, and in magazines.

Nearly 200 reference entries:
- Connectors ("in the event of", "provided that", "on the other hand")
- Phrasal verbs ("to brush aside", "to pull out of", "to put into")
- Idiomatic verb-phrases ("to mark a new chapter in", "to sink in")
- Everyday expressions ("an eyesore", "cause for alarm", "off the cuff")

Mini-quizzes after each section, and a comprehensive final exam

Plus practice tips on reading "media English":
- Computer-related vocabulary
- Popular English-language news, sports, and finance websites
- Practice with registration forms
- Overview of news article structure
- Features of headlines (with suggestions for reading strategies)
- Overview of financial websites (key vocabulary, elements of financial
advice, understanding financial predictions)
- The basics of sports websites (key vocabulary, writing style, elements
of sports articles and features)

English online is difficult. Let this easy-to-use guide help boost your learning curve.

Reviewed by Axilea MU 12/18/2007
Hi David Petersen,

I have just discovered your books and their content looks very interesting. This is all I can say for the moment, but I will download the free preview to learn more about them.
I taught English and French to Japanese students for three years and I am also a professional translator, which is why I'm interested in your work.

Kind regards,
