This book is so good. Just like the first one. I am Spanish and have lived in the UK for many years. I think my English is OK, but there are still many things I miss when people talk or I know a word but I'm not sure how to use it. This book is much better than a dictionary and the CD is brilliant. Practical Everyday English (the first book) and this one are the best vocabulary books for advanced students that I have read. Fantastic! Milagrosa
From the Publisher
Advanced Everyday English is designed in very much the same mode as the first book (Practical Everyday English with audio CD) in that all of the examples will contain vocabulary and expressions you have studied on earlier pages. You will also find many words from the first book, which will give you an opportunity to revise the material. In this second book there is more of what one might call "serious" vocabulary, but there are plenty of phrasal verbs and idioms as well.
The book will be of particular benefit to those readers with an advanced level of English who wish to become (or who already are) interpreters, translators or teachers of English, or who simply want to be able to speak and understand English at a very high level. In addition, people who need to read English language journals or converse in English on a daily basis, either in business or for pleasure, will find it very useful.
