How to Learn a
Foreign Language by Aurelia McNeil, MAT
Publisher: Language Experts, LLC. (2004)
Genre: "How To"
ISBN: 097553100x (ebook)
Wonderful guide to learning
August 17, 2004
Personally having Spanish as a native language,
English as a secondary, and Japanese as a third - I
found this book quite interesting. Unlike the
suggestions within the guide I learned Spanish and
English practically at the same time, then without a
passport threw myself into an unknown country -
obtained a job and soon learned a third language.
Although I do not recommend this for the faint at
Acquiring another language is without doubt learning
a skill, not just a body of information. It's as much
like learning to swim or ride a bike, and few would
argue that the most ideal way to learn a foreign
language would be equal parts of total immersion and
formal classroom instruction.
Aurelia McNeil's guide explains the step-by-step
process of learning another language plain and simple.
Starting from language similarities, to cultural
barriers, to materials required, to how to select a
dictionary, methods, approaches, practices, and more.
The guide also explains which languages are easier to
learn, which may help in selecting one to get started.
Also included within the guide are tips to help in the
absorption of a new language, numerous resources
and what to do if you're feeling shy about taking a
step in this direction.
If you are interested in foreign cultures, or want to
learn (French?) for next years vacation, or for job
specific reasons -knowledge of another language and
culture will increase your career opportunities,
broaden your horizons and enrich your life. McNeil's
guide of effective learning strategies will help you
achieve this goal. This Resource Guide is not only
great for learners of all ages, but teachers will find
the information provided quite helpful. Home schooling
moms may want to check this guide out as well.

Merfolk by Kelly Reno

Probably one of the best Merfolk tales out there!
August 13, 2004
Brendan James was a successful travel writer and
once best-selling author who now feels he's suffering
from a severe case of writer's block. He's arrogant,
obnoxious, self-centered, has been blessed with good
looks, his conquests many and easily discarded with
no remorse. Having asked for a ridiculous advance,
he's about to blow a book deal with no manuscript to
show for, thus ruining his career. Reed Press' editor,
Jake Hogan, is on the verge of committing suicide
himself due to his "prima Dona." As a last ditch effort,
Jake suggests Brendan attend a number of events, to
help spark the flow of creative juices, which are to
take place on the Man of Isle, including a mermaid
Frustrated with the scenery and local stock Brendan
attempts to catch a ferry to Dublin, but soon learns
of its sinking and with no immediate way out, is
forced to take shelter in Heather Bay, a small village
left behind by modern technology. Trying to obtain a
room for the night Brendan impersonates a reporter
for a prestigious magazine. What he gets is a musty
houseboat that seems a remnant from the 60's.
The comical mishaps, and deranged characters of
Heather Bay prompt Brendan to stay a bit longer than
anticipated. He attends a "Live Underwater Mermaid
Show," later meeting the exquisite creature, Christine
Hamilton back in her dressing room only to be
insulted. Taken by the beauty, Brendan looks for
other ways to cross her path, while searching for
descent material for his book.
Brendan quickly discovers that these villagers are not
only obsessed with their annual festivities, Merfolk, a
legend, and "the curse" - that turns out to be a
reality and love! But it's the antiquated villagers
themselves that propel Brendan to write, and write,
and write! His only fear is that they discover his true
identity and the purpose for his inquisitive interviews.

Costly Web Copy Pitfalls
One secret to a site that sells: Look at your site from
your customer's perspective. Another secret: Watch
out for these common web copy pitfalls. Welcome to-
- nothing Look at your site's web copy. Does it begin
with "Welcome to--?" If so, get rid of it. It means
nothing. It doesn't speak to your customers. It's just
a waste of your customers' time and space. Rather
than the worn out phrase, "Welcome to..." try a
statement that captures the essence of your
product, explaining it in terms that'll benefit your
Instead of "Welcome to Crazy Dave's CD
Emporium," try "Crazy Dave's CD Emporium, where
you can find quality CDs and crazy prices."
Where do I go? If you track your site's metrics, look
at your customers' paths. How many customers get
past the home page? If it's less than desired, there
might be a problem with your site's navigation. If
you're one of those people with mega-content sites,
add an internal search to help your customers find
their way. If you're a smaller site, add navigation bars
that update automatically when your site's structures
changes or evolves.
"It's all about me." Your site is supposed to be about
your customers not you. Let's face it: Your
customers don't care about your Nobel Prize or that
you were the first person to sell a condominium on
Jupiter, they do care, however, about how your
expertise can help them.
Quick tip: Visit your site. Does the copy contain
more "we," "me," and "I" statements than "you"
Marco... Polo Have you ever visited a site to be sold
on the product, and then when you needed to ask a
quick question, you couldn't find their contact
information? The solution: Put at least an email
address or phone number on each page, preferably at
the top or bottom. Then put more detailed contact
information on your contact page.
Vague, iffy, testimonials are the easiest and perhaps
the best way to capture your customers' attention
and confidence. But simple statements saying that
your product is good, won't work. Detailed
testimonials praising how much your product touched
Another way to give testimonials more selling power,
get a picture.
Even better, get a picture with you customer and

How to format TV scripts
It is nearly impossible for novices to break into
television with a new series pilot or mini-series. If you
have a hot idea that you believe in, write the pilot as
a TV movie (using standard spec screenplay format)
and market it as feature script or TV movie. That
way, it will be easier to get it read. If it truly is a
great series idea, the agent or producer reading it will
see that potential.
If you want to write an episode for a one-hour
series -- whether a dramatic series like ER, or one
more humorous like King of Queens -- you will still use
standard spec screenplay form (as used with feature
scripts). You do not need to indicate scenes,
however, you must designate the four acts, teaser,
This is the brief (about one minute or so) initial
section establishing the show. Seldom do you find an
episodic series anymore that doesn't open with some
kind of teaser. However, it is seldom indicated as a
TEASER in the script. Most scripts simply FADE IN
just like a feature screeplay.
THE FOUR ACTS
After the teaser, break to a new page and center
ACT ONE at the top of the page, triple space, and
write out the scenes just as you would in a feature
screenplay, using standard spec screenplay format.
Many production companies also request that you
add END OF ACT ONE at the end of the act (just
triple space and center END OF ACT ONE), after
which you break to a new page to the second act,
and so on. Some shows, like the Star Trek series,
have five acs. After each act, break to a new page.
The tag, often called the epilogue, is the brief (about
one minute or so, and often less) ending section that
ties up loose ends. In some shows, this is "scenes
from next week's episode." Usually, the epilogue or
tag is identified as such at the top of the page.
TITLE PAGE AND SCRIPT LENGTH
Your script will be about 54 pages in length.
The tile page for any episodic TV show, regardless of
length, is similar to that of a feature script, except
that the title of the episode is included along with
the title of the series. Here is an example from a
TWO AND A HALF MEN
"PHASE ONE, COMPLETE"
The title of the episode, in addition to being set aside
in quotes, can be underscored. If you prefer, it can
appear in upper and lower case. The point is to
distinguish it from the series title above it. Also, you
can space (as I did) or three times between the
series title and the episode title.
It may be worthwhile to acquire a script from the
series itself for writing style, number of acts, how
acts are labled, and formatting quirks (keeping in
mind that you are writing a spec script, not a
shooting script, and that you will avoid camera angles
and editing directions in your scrit.) Also, try to get a
copy of the show's bible.
The bible is a printed guide that sets forth
the rules of the show, including character sketches
and information on what's forbidden and what they're
Now write a couple of scripts and submit one or more
to the TV producer of your choice... and good luck!!
