This audiobook consists of lessons 16 to 25 from the Original or Classic version of the Learning Spanish Like Crazy Level 1 program (as opposed to the NEW and IMPROVED version). Learning Spanish Like Crazy will teach you how to speak authentic Latin American conversational Spanish. I have only used native Spanish-speakers in this program to make sure that you develop an authentic Latin American Spanish accent. If you are not concerned with learning how to speak real everyday conversational Spanish, then this program is probably not for you. I understand that there are people who only want to learn enough Spanish to communicate with a hotel clerk, restaurant waiter, flight attendant, etc., in a Spanish speaking country. But there are others who want to learn enough Spanish so that they will be able to develop meaningful friendships and relationships with Spanish speakers, and improve communication with Spanish-speaking in-laws. If the latter category best describes you, then this program is for you. The Learning Spanish Like Crazy system also puts a major emphasis on improving pronunciation. Some people have a natural ability that allows them to quickly develop native-like pronunciation. You probably know someone who is the type of person that I am referring to. We have all seen or heard someone who can imitate the voice of a famous politician, actor, singer, or other celebrity so well that you could almost be fooled into thinking that you are actually hearing the famous person speak. Unfortunately, I was not born with that talent. I had to learn certain techniques to improve my Spanish pronunciation. Those same pronunciation-enhancing techniques are incorporated in this program.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play, this modern American classic is about family, and the legacy of slavery in America. August Wilson has already given the American theater such spell-binding plays about the black experience in 20th-century America as Ma Rainey´s Black Bottom, Joe Turner´s Come and Gone, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Fences . In his second Pulitzer Prize-winner, The Piano Lesson, Wilson has fashioned perhaps his most haunting and dramatic work. At the heart of the play stands the ornately carved upright piano which, as the Charles family´s prized, hard-won possession, has been gathering dust in the parlor of Berniece Charles´s Pittsburgh home. When Boy Willie, Berniece´s exuberant brother, bursts into her life with his dream of buying the same Mississippi land that his family had worked as slaves, he plans to sell their antique piano for the hard cash he needs to stake his future. But Berniece refuses to sell, clinging to the piano as a reminder of the history that is their family legacy. This dilemma is the real ´´piano lesson,´´ reminding us that blacks are often deprived both of the symbols of their past and of opportunity in the present.
A million copy seller, a classic economic primer and a fundamental influence on modern libertarian economics. Considered among the leading economic thinkers, Hazlitt was a libertarian philosopher, an economist and a journalist. Written in 1946, this seminal work is concise, instructive, deceptively prescient and far-reaching in its efforts to dissemble economic fallacies that are so prevalent they have almost become a new orthodoxy. Many current economic commentators credit Hazlitt with foreseeing the collapse of the global economy, making this ever relevant.
(2000 ´Delmark´) (68:48/14) Gutes neues Album der starken Sängerin, die sich diesmal neben klassischen Bluesthemen z.B. auch ´Nutbush City Limits´, bekannt von Tina Turner, vorgenommen hat / fine new effort from this powerful singer. Besides her classic Chicago style blues you´ll also find songs like ´Nutbush City Limits´. ZORA YOUNG - voc, JAMES WHEELER - gtr, DANNY DREHER - gtr, KEN SAYDAK - pno, JOHNNY B. GAYDEN - bass, TIM AUSTIN - drums. Learned My Lesson is the celebration of Zora Young´s lifelong love affair with the blues.This is Zora´s first album on an established American label which is surprising since she is one of the most creative blues singers in Chicago. Zora was born in West Point, Mississippi and raised in Chicago where she grew up singing gospel music in a south side church. After years in the R&B ´´chittlin circuit´´, she switched to blues and since then has shared the stage with B.B. and Albert King, played the Chicago Blues Festival many times and tours Europe regularly. Zora´s voice ranges from a melancholy whisper to a rock ´n´ roll scream, and she will have you in her corner with one listen. With this album Zora Young has finally arrived to claim her rightful place as a contemporary blues powerhouse.
