Virginia Catmur

This Taster course is the first hour of the eight-hour Foundation Portuguese course. Within this first hour you will learn 50 essential words of Portuguese thanks to the Michel Thomas Method, perfected over 50 years by celebrated psycholinguist Michel Thomas. * Pick up Portuguese naturally and unforgettably without strain* Learn from listening and speaking, without the pressure of writing or memorizing* Build up your Portuguese in manageable steps by thinking out answers for yourself* Progress to the full Foundation Portuguese course with confidence in the method. How does it work?During this one-hour live course, you will join Michel Thomas Method teacher Virginia Catmur and two students in a live lesson, learning from both their successes and their mistakes to keep you motivated and involved throughout the course. From the beginning you will be able to construct simple sentences, and you will learn at your own pace, pausing and repeating as necessary, and completing the course within 3-4 hours.Why is the Method so successful? 'What you understand, you know; and what you know, you don't forget.' - Michel ThomasMichel Thomas believed that the greatest barrier to any form of learning was stress: stress from worrying about remembering what you are being taught, stress from being afraid to make a mistake, stress from failing.With the Michel Thomas Method, all the attention is focused on removing stress and tension from the learning environment. The teacher takes on full responsibility for your understanding, and therefore your remembering, of what is being taught. In fact, the Michel Thomas Method forbids you from trying to memorize. There's no writing, no books, no homework.The Michel Thomas Method works by stripping away all inessential language and breaking down the most important language into its component parts. Crystal-clear building blocks are then presented, and only when they are absorbed and understood is the next piece of the puzzle introduced, enabling you to reconstruct the language for yourself - to form your own sentences, to say what you want, when you want.What's in the Course?*Start Portuguese comprises one audio CD. The booklet is available to download from www.michelthomas.com.Learn anywhereMichel Thomas Method audio courses let you learn whenever you want: at home, in your car, or on the move with your MP3 player.What learners are sayingI experienced the same sort of pleasure that you got from suddenly getting a crossword clue right or cracking a code...the finger-snapping moment of, Oh My God! I've just understood what you've said to me in Spanish or you've just understood me! -Peter LØVSTRØM , Actor, 2017I've used Michel Thomas to get off the starting block for French, Italian and Spanish and I'm always surprised by how much I can say after only a few hours of listening. The Michel Thomas Italian course organises verbs into logical groups which helps you pick them up fast. And perhaps more importantly, it shows you how to use this grammar to build useful sentences. -Katie from Joyoflanguages.com

Sansom's Dominion.London, 1952. Dick Bourton is not like the other probationer policemen in Notting Hill. He's older, having fought in Europe and then Korea. And he's no Londoner, being from Cotswold farming stock. Then there's Anna, the exotically beautiful White Russian fiancée he has brought back to these drab streets and empty bombsites. She may as well come from a different planet. The new copper also has a mind of his own. After an older colleague is shot by a small-time gangster they are chasing in a pea-souper fog, something nags at Bourton's memory. He begins to make connections which his superiors don't want to see, linking a whole series of deaths and the fogs that stop the city in its tracks. Desperate to prove himself and his theories, Bourton fails to notice the fear which his mysterious bride is doing her best to conceal - and overcome.Soon both Anna and Bourton are taking dangerous paths into the worst fog London has ever known...**********"London had gone. As he stepped through the wicket, a dry smoky chill puffing over the lintel, everything that made the city - skyline, street signs, crowds, scarlet double-deckers - had disappeared, lost in the murk. I can't see the kerb, for God's sake, let alone Barker's across the road. He looked both ways, the chill crawling down his neck . . . Coshing gangs will love this. And our man. But we're on your trail, sunshine. He raised his hat to Marling, locking up behind. Tomorrow we nab you."
