    how idiosyncratic the English language can be!


    Acknowledgments


    This book is inspired by all the people like us who’ve struggled – sometimes


    successfully, other times less so – to learn a foreign language. Between us


    we’ve tried French, Spanish, Catalan, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese,


    Latin and Indonesian! Friends from those countries who know us will be


    better judges than we are of our expertise in each of those. As teachers of


    English, this book is particularly indebted to all the learners we’ve had the


    privilege of teaching over the past twenty years and from whom we have


    learnt more than they could possibly have learnt from us. Publisher’s Acknowledgments


    We’re proud of this book; please send us your comments through our Dummies online registration


    form located at www.dummies.com/register/.
