Synopsis

A brand new learning aid, incorporating 2 CDs and a complementary book, that uses the stories of the peerless Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, to both teach and improve English.



A new product designed for those people who wish to improve their English by the tried and tested method of `reading, hearing and understanding'.

Using Christie's simple, yet flawless, English, the twists and turns of her plots will keep listeners entertained whilst they improve their grammar and vocabulary.

Each volume is read by a selection of celebrated readers, many of who are already synonymous with Agatha Christie, The Queen of Crime after appearing in the world-renowned television adaptations of her work. With each CD specifically featuring a variety of readers, listeners will get used to hearing and understanding English spoken in a variety of dialects, tones and pitches.

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
