English is a crazy language, there’s no denying it.  How many times have you asked “why?” about its sound or spelling, only to be told that you just have to accept it the way it is.  English words have strange spellings and even stranger pronunciations, which are hard for all of us, including those who speak it as their mother tongue.

 

Crazy English gives a clear, simple account of how the English language has developed into the fascinating but illogical language we speak today.  Starting from its origins 1500 years ago and tracing it through to the present, it shows how it has become the most dominant language of the 21st century, and therefore, why we all have to learn it!

 

Crazy English is intended for children, young people and adults and contains short texts and simple illustrations which make a complicated subject fun and surprisingly easy to understand.  It also contains questions for English students and a page by page English-Spanish glossary of terms.

 

 ¡El inglés es un idioma loco! ¿Quién lo puede negar?   ¿Cuántas veces te has preguntado "¿Por qué?" sobre su sonido u ortografía, para que te digan que es así y punto. Las palabras en inglés tienen formas de escribir extrañas con una pronunciación aún más extraña, lo cual es difícil para todos, incluidos los que lo hablan como lengua materna.

 

Crazy English da una explicación sencilla y  clara sobre cómo la lengua inglesa se ha desarrollado hasta convertirse en el idioma fascinante pero ilógico que hoy hablamos. Desde su origen hace más de 1500 años, y siguiendo su progreso hasta el presente, muestra cómo se ha convertido en el idioma dominante del siglo veintiuno, y por lo tanto, ¡por qué todos lo tenemos que aprender!

 

Crazy English está destinado a niños, jóvenes y adultos y contiene textos cortos e ilustraciones sencillas que hacen que un tema complicado sea divertido y sorprendentemente fácil de entender. También contiene preguntas para los estudiantes de inglés y un glosario inglés-español de cada página.

    The Spanish word for “tongue twister” is “trabalenguas”.  Rather than twisting your tongue as in English, in Spanish they trip it up.  In just the same way as we have[…]
