Flawless Stories, in Flawless English, Flawlessly Read.
Book and 2 Audio CDs.
A brand-new learning aid, incorporating two CDs and a complementary book, designed for those people who wish to improve their English by the tried and tested method of "reading, hearing and understanding".
Using Agatha Christie's simple, yet flawless, English, the twists and turns of her plots will keep listeners entertained while they improve their grammar and vocabulary.
Each volume is read by a selection of celebrated readers, many of whom are already synonymous with Agatha Christie, the Queen of Crime, after appearing in the world-renowned television adaptations of her work.
