About this book

This book contains exercises connected with some of the fun or more unusual aspects of the English languageand with games that typically a native English speaker would do. The games have been adapted into a manageable format, but the actual vocabulary contained has not been changed.

The types of games include: lateral thinking games, riddles, logic tests, anagrams, palindromes, proverbs, limericks, word ladders, tongue twisters, plus a whole host of other word-related games.

Easy English! is a series of books to help you learn and revise your English with minimal effort. You can improve your English by

  • reading texts in English that you might well normally read in your own language e.g. jokes, personality tests, lateral thinking games, wordsearches.
  • doing short exercises to improve specific areas grammar and vocabulary, i.e. the areas that tend to lead to the most mistakes - the aim is just to focus on what you really need rather than overwhelming yourself with a mass of rules, many of which may have no practical daily value
