Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the book "Virtually Native" and the video course "Independent Learner"?
The video course provides visual and audio demonstrations of most ideas discussed in the book and especially with regard to Pronunciation, Listening and Dictionaries: - language is sound, you need to hear it; -- a picture is worth a thousand words, you need to see it. Another difference is that the video course introduces some new ideas not covered in the book.
What level of English should I have to be able to understand this book?
B1 level, even A2 level learners of English should be able to understand it. The English used is easy and simple with only a few "difficult" words.
Is the book available in PDF?
No. The book is only available in EPUB and MOBI. You can convert your EPUB to PDF using any of the free file converters available online. However, EPUB is far superior in reading experience to PDF.
Is the book available in HARD COPY?
No. The book is only available in EPUB and MOBI. You can print your EPUB file on whatever type of paper you desire.
Do I need a Kindle device or the Kindle app to read the book?
No. Any tablet, laptop or desktop computer will do, and any EPUB reader software will do.
What is the best way to read this book?
The best way is to read it on a tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Please don't read the book on your phone because you won't be able to focus and will learn virtually nothing. Smartphones are not for reading books, they are for reading text messages and short articles. Please read the book on a tablet, laptop or a desktop monitor using the EPUB file, or on Kindle using the MOBI file.
Can I get a free sample of the book?
Yes. The book 'VIRTUALLY NATIVE' is available on Amazon where you can read the first chapter for free. However, please buy the book from my website because I only get 30% of what you pay on Amazon - Jeff Bezos gets 70% (you can still read the book on your Kindle using the MOBI file). THANK YOU.
