Your chance to get a free audio book from Audible
If you’re in the UK or Germany, you can get a free ebook if you sign up for an Audible subscription. Whether or not you continue with the monthly subscription, you get to keep your audio book, and you can choose from 200,000 titles on a wide range of subjects. You can then download the Audible app on your phone and take your book with you wherever you go! (Books have to be purchased on the website – you can’t do it on the app).
1. This offer is open to people in Germany and the UK. Remember to use the correct link for your country.
2. You are eligible if you haven’t had a free audio book from Audible in the last year.
3. If you don’t want to pay, you must remember to cancel your subscription within the first month. You will still be able to keep your free book.
4. If you like the service, you will continue to receive a credit each month, which can be used to buy a book. Buying books on subscription is often cheaper than buying them individually.
These are affiliate links, but I only promote things on my website or in my newsletters that I use and enjoy. I am an Audible member and I am very happy with the service.
Audio courses – for people who want to learn in their own time
Do you want to become a better communicator when you use English at work?
Whether you want to improve your email communication or achieve more at networking events, my audio courses are full of practical tips and information that will help you.
How do the courses work?
On weekdays (Monday to Friday) you will receive an email that contains a link to the course material for that day. There will be a short audio message from me that lasts between 5 to 15 minutes. In the audio message, I discuss a topic related to your course, give you tips on what will help you and what you should avoid, and I provide practical examples to illustrate my points. There is also written information on the web page that summarises my key points, demonstrates my examples or highlights any important terms or phrases.
The courses are intended for people who want to learn on their own, at a time that suits them.
Concentrating on one topic for a number of days will help you to focus and develop your skills in this area.
You can complete the course from anywhere where you have an internet connection and you can replay the audios and refer back to them as often as you want.
