Summary

Onco-mice and cloned sheep, drones and auto-automobiles, neuro-enhancement and prosthetic therapy: Is transhumanism a "movement that epitomizes the most daring, courageous, imaginative, and idealistic aspirations of humanity" (Ronald Bailey 2004), or rather "the world's most dangerous idea" (Francis Fukuyama 2009)? This volume attempts to elucidate what we understand by the term "transhumanism", what topics and problems we face, what media are suitable for classroom use, what lesson scenarios seem effective, what benefits we may reap, and what challenges we have to cope with when we teach transhumanism in English language classes.

    Learn Conversational Italian Vol. 2 is an audio course for beginners or for anyone who struggles with becoming fluent in Italian. The focus of this course is to practice speaking conversational Italian from the very first lesson. Each lesson contains useful everyday phrases related to a specific topic. 
    In these lessons, you’ll be introduced to several “conversation connectors”. Phrases like “as a matter of fact”, “frankly speaking”, “as you already know” and more. By using such phrases, your conversations will have a more natural flow. You will also expand your vocabulary and talk about daily activities, work, plans, and needs. 
    Based on techniques and strategies that make language learners succeed: 
    Learn in short bursts every day. Each lesson takes about 10 minutes to complete. 
    Learn in context. Isolated words or random sentences won’t get you far. By learning phrases related to a specific topic or situation you will see much better results. 
    Focus on high-frequency words. Starting with the most frequently used words will boost your comprehension and communication in your target language. 
    Review the material. Repeating the phrases at certain specified intervals is a powerful technique to help your memory absorb and recall what you have learned. 
    Listen to native speakers. All the phrases are translated and spoken by native speakers.
