Метод Гивенталь: Активируем грамматические и лексические речевые модели английского

У знаменитого и эффективного метода Гивенталь ( я разделяю ее подходы- формулируем речевую ситуацию по-русски и запоминаем ее соответствие в виде грамматической или словарной формулы-модели по-английски ) появился наконец учебник для совсем начинающих. Советую всем!

 Ну а книга стоит того, чтобы ее купить. Для среднего уровня советую "Как это сказать по-английски" ( грамматические модели всех времен ) и "Как удивиться и возмутиться по-английски ( грамматические и лексические модели с модальными глаголами )

"Книга представляет собой учебно-методическое пособие для взрослых, которые хотят помочь своим детям и себе заговорить, наконец, по-английски!
Курс разработан в соответствии с принципами авторской образовательной технологии КЭСПА. Создатель методики Инна Гивенталь предлагает расширять свои знания, отталкиваясь не от незнакомого чужого (английского), а от привычного родного (русского).

Книга предназначена для совместной работы детей младшего и среднего школьного возраста и их родителей, бабушек и дедушек. Незаменимым подспорьем в процессе освоения уроков станет аудиокурс, в котором авторы не только произносят новые слова и выражения, обучают особой речевой гимнастике, но и рассказывают о себе удивительные истории. Когда вы со своими детьми пройдете все 114 занимательных уроков, то ни вас, ни детей больше не будет мучить вопрос: "Как это сказать по-английски?"
