This book is Volume 1–3 of the very popular series 150 Really Useful  English Phrases.

Do You Feel Stuck in the Intermediate English Level?
Do you want to break out and start improving quickly?
Then this is the perfect book to help you move up to the advanced level and start using everyday English fluently.

What made me want to write this book?
After years of teaching intermediate students who never seemed to improve I decided to find out what the problem was. Essentially, intermediate students get stuck because learning at this stage is a different type of learning than at the beginner stage. You have mastered the grammar and the basic vocabulary but most textbooks just carry on like nothing has changed. However, what you need at the intermediate stage is not just more dry grammar and lists of vocabulary, but to be exposed to as much ‘real’ English in as many ‘real-life’ situations as possible. This will help you start to understand what people are actually saying and not just ‘textbook’ English. It will also help you to naturally ‘get a feel’ for the language. Because I couldn’t find a book that introduced everyday English phrases in a fun and engaging way I decided to write one myself.

How will this book help you?
Every new phrase is introduced in the real context of a short story or an article. So by having fun and reading something interesting you will be learning naturally rather than having to force yourself to study. It’s a simple fact that if you are having fun you will learn quicker and more easily.
This series of books is an excellent way to be exposed to ‘real everyday English phrases’ but with the guidance of clear explanations and examples in simple English. Basically it uses simple language to introduce more complex phrases so you are eased into a more advanced level.

All of the phrases in this book are in common use and are the key to unlocking fluency. I have only included phrases which I have heard recently in conversation or on the radio or television. If it is in this book it is in everyday use.
So, if you are sick of being stuck and want to improve in a fun and engaging way, please press the buy button on the top right of this page to get started today.
