In a Sunburned Country by BILL BRYSON

A fun and educational romp down under
Everything I've ever heard about Australia makes it sound like a fascinating place. This books confirms that impression and elaborates on it greatly. Bryson's writing is extremely vivid and many his anecdotes are very funny. I suspect that few travellers see as much of Australia as Bryson has, and here is a wonderfully quirky overview of a equally quirky land. Bryson touches on almost every aspect of life "down under," from politics, to ...

Criterion-referenced Language Testing (Cambridge Applied Linguistics) by James Dean Brown, Thom Hudson

Over the past decade criterion-referenced testing (CRT) has become an emerging issue in language assessment.

It is designed to comprehensively address the wide variety of CRT and decisio...

Practical English Usage, 2nd Edition by Michael Swan

A very useful grammar the size of a dictionary
This grammar book has the size of a dictionary, and the entries are in alphabetical order for quick reference. It is "intended for intermediate and advanced students, and for teachers of English," as it is stated in the introduction. I particularly enjoy the bright white of the paper and the use of a brown-red for the entries, whereas their explanations are in black, in bold type and cursive. There are also ten very interesting pages about...
