Practical Everyday English is not just a book, but a method which helps upper-intermediate and advanced students to understand and then use everyday vocabulary. Most of the material in the book is good conversational English rather than academic. However, I should like to point out that "good conversational English" does not mean street slang. There is included within the book a small amount of slang which now passes as "acceptable" English, but even members of the British Royal Family would use most of the phrases and idioms contained in these pages.

The method is simple: in almost every example in the book, apart from the first few pages, I have tried to use a word or phrase that has been taught on earlier pages. For example, in Chapter 5 the reader is taught the expression To get carried away, which means to become too enthusiastic about something. One of the examples given is:
"I got a bit carried away with the shopping today. My wife is bound to hit the roof when she finds out how much money I've got through."
He or she will already know To be bound to, To hit the roof and To get through because they appear in earlier chapters. Therefore, after reading these words and expressions time and time again, the students will find themselves being able to understand, speak and write Practical Everyday English almost automatically.
The book consists of:
- Nine Chapters.
- Three Lessons a chapter consisting of ten or more words or expressions, plus examples.
- Dialogues containing words taught in that chapter.
- Exercises with answers at the end of the book.
- Audio CD containing all the dialogues.
