A Walk in my Skin (adult & VCE readers)  $25

This novel contains 32 adventures about Greek migrant parents and their Aussie kids' experiences in a country town, Hamilton, Victoria. It is an honest telling of what can happen to people as they settle into a new country with a different culture and try to learn Aussie English! Australian expressions, idioms and slang are scattered unapologetically throughout the novel. 

The true stories would appeal to those who enjoy reading of real-life historical experiences and considering themes involving personal relationships (bullying, self-identity, friendships, arranged marriages, intolerance, patience, parenting, the environment, beauty, faith, etc.), all aimed at improving writing, reading and discussion skills and empowering students to become robust citizens in their community and to find their own voice. Themes can be used as springboards to writing interesting essays too.

Features include good vocabulary, a different literary device and a proverb used in each chapter.

Aussies will love the humour and wistful aspects of the novel A WALK IN MY SKIN  as they reminisce about the 1960s and share in the misadventures of the 3 boisterous kids (Dennis the Menace has nothing on them!). It's a great read! 

The English student will find the simplified version of the book Speak English Like Australians! easy-to-read and to understand. English learners and migrants will see they have similar experiences. Teachers and students will enjoy reading the stories in class and having lots of  discussions with friends.

Reader Testimonials

I couldn't put it down. I had to keep reading as it reminded me of my early years.

Comment of the first Aussie reader of this book

 

These are great stories and Aussie expressions! Our English learners can relate to many of the experiences described with humour and honesty. 

Comment of  English teacher

When I was a boy in China, we built a billy-cart too! Kids play the same games, even if the cultures are different. I was shocked!  learner-Ming
