Speaking Beautiful English : Building Successful Lives
Speaking Beautiful English is a one-of-a-kind character and skills based approach for communicating in a global society that will not only touch your mind, but also your heart. This happens through 26 chapters of exemplary world-class role models, timeless truths, principles of cross-cultural awareness, and essential business/ leadership and conversational skills--for knowing what to say and how to express yourself appropriately in various situations. Speaking Beautiful English, through its balanced and comprehensive design, provides learners with knowledge of English and its cultural foundations, the skills of effective cross cultural communication, and the confidence needed to practice and use what is being learned. Through the modeling of instructors and practical classroom simulations, students will experience language learning that will transfer to the real world. Beyond these beautiful instructional elements, there is something of even greater beauty within every lesson. It is this aspect of Speaking Beautiful English that is the foundation for success in all of life---wisdom. Whereas learning English is a relatively new worldwide desire, the pursuit for wisdom has characterized people from all cultures throughout history. Wisdom, the ability to live life rightly, should be the outcome of every student's education. Exemplary character and the truths of right living are woven throughout this textbook. The authors realize that without character and the ability to make ethical decisions, knowledge and skills, English included, will not lead to success. As students move through each lesson, they will be introduced to people who demonstrated wisdom and who can serve as a model for how to live life with integrity. The most unmotivated student will be inspired from the inspiration of this book. If you wish to learn how to speak this language, while improving your character, competence, and people skills, this book is perfect for you!
