Summary

Do you spend hours writing and rewriting emails or presentations in English? 
Do you secretly hope that the phone won’t ring, because you’re worried about speaking English to colleagues or customers? 
Do you dread having to give verbal updates at meetings if they’re held in English? 
I work with people who need to use English at work. I’ve discovered that often, helping my customers to develop their language skills isn’t enough. What they really want are opportunities to work on subjects that are directly relevant to them, and strategies for using this knowledge in the every-day business situations in which they find themselves. 
In the 50 chapters of this book, I provide tips on how to deal with a range of situations and how to increase your confidence, perform at your best and portray yourself in a positive light. These situations include contributing to meetings in English, using the telephone, taking part in networking events, going for job interviews and having general conversations. 
I also look at some of the problems that people have in terms of improving their English and some possible solutions. The problems include fear of speaking, not being able to find the right course, not having time to learn and not being able to remember new vocabulary. There are also more general tips about what you can do to make language learning a part of your everyday routine, and not just something that you try to squeeze in when you have time. 
The book is 50,000 words long and it is split into 50 chapters. However, you don’t have to read it from start to finish. For best results, see which chapters are relevant to your personal circumstances and start with those!

    There are many advantages that you will find to learning another language, especially one that is as widely spoken as Spanish:
     
    Travel – If you travel to a Spanish-speaking country, having a rudimentary idea of the language will help you get around and get along with those who live there. You will know where to go and look less like a tourist. When you are lost or need information, you can ask anyone in their own language and understand them.
     
    Business – If you have a business, knowing how to speak multiple languages can increase your bottom line. Sometimes you will have a client who only speaks Spanish, and knowing Spanish will help you be able to communicate and connect with them.
     
    Job Opportunity – When you are looking for a job, being bilingual can help you tremendously with standing out and having a better chance of being hired. It shows potential employers that extra value you have to offer for their expansible customer base.
     
    So, if you are looking for a simple way to learn Spanish in only a few days, our "5-Day Spanish Language Challenge" will set you on your path to success.
     
    It will give you the essential information about many things in the Spanish language. You’ll learn about the alphabet, phonetics, verbs, and much more. Best of all, it’s very easy to understand and even shows you how to use Spanish in real life.

    Three-Rayed Sun The sun suspended in heaven by three powers, perhaps the Triple Goddess who gave birth to it (see Three-Way Motifs). 
    Corn Dolly An embodiment of the harvest to be set in the center of the harvest dance, or fed to the cattle to `make them thrive year round' (see Secular-Sacred Objects).

    Cosmic Egg In ancient times the primeval universe-or the Great Mother-took the form of an egg. It carried all numbers and letters within an ellipse, to show that everything is contained within one form at the beginning (see Round and Oval Motifs).

    The Story of Hebrew

    A unique history of the Hebrew language from biblical times to the modern Jewish state 
    This book explores the extraordinary hold that Hebrew has had on Jews and Christians, who have invested it with a symbolic power far beyond that of any other language in history. Preserved by the Jews across two millennia, Hebrew endured long after it ceased to be a mother tongue, resulting in one of the most intense textual cultures ever known. It was a bridge to Greek and Arab science. It unlocked the biblical sources for Jerome and the Reformation. Kabbalists and humanists sought philosophical truth in it, and Colonial Americans used it to shape their own Israelite political identity. Today, it is the first language of millions of Israelis. 
    The Story of Hebrew takes readers from the opening verses of Genesis—which seemingly describe the creation of Hebrew itself—to the reincarnation of Hebrew as the everyday language of the Jewish state. Lewis Glinert explains the uses and meanings of Hebrew in ancient Israel and its role as a medium for wisdom and prayer. He describes the early rabbis' preservation of Hebrew following the Babylonian exile, the challenges posed by Arabic, and the prolific use of Hebrew in Diaspora art, spirituality, and science. Glinert looks at the conflicted relationship Christians had with Hebrew from the Renaissance to the Counter-Reformation, the language's fatal rivalry with Yiddish, the dreamers and schemers that made modern Hebrew a reality, and how a lost pre-Holocaust textual ethos is being renewed today by Orthodox Jews. 
    A major work of scholarship, The Story of Hebrew is an unforgettable account of what one language has meant to those possessing it.
