British holidays do's and don'ts

Issue 49 of English Now magazine hit the newsstands in France this weekend. (Of course, it's also available from our website.) English Now is different from any other language learning magazine in that it its articles are written specifically for French-speakers learning English who are at beginner to intermediate level.

Each page has keywords translated into French. No need for a dictionary here - we've done it for you. Also, the feature articles are available in CD format with 60+ minutes of audio read by native English speakers from Britain, the US and Australia to help the learner tune their ear to different accents.

So what's in this issue?

- learn about people’s first job experiences – good and bad!
- go back to the 1960s in the UK
- get key vocabulary for toiletries
- keep up-to-date on the latest news from English-speaking countries
- find out what Australian women need most: men or their mobile phones?
- practice taking phone messages in English
- meet a horse racer
- discover new ways to explore Britain on holiday (and what NOT to do!)
- find out how to make polite requests in English
- practice making small talk
- learn how to make mushy peas – don’t forget the mint sauce!
