- Which grammar book do you recommend?

- Can you recommend any books that will help me improve my English?
I always recommend 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' (https://goo.gl/7vGLDY) as it is written in the first person from the point of view of an autistic teenager and it does not use very complicated language. Some of it is also based in London which I like.
- Can you recommend a British TV Series for me to watch and improve my British English pronunciation?
Absolutely! I highly recommend 'Broadchurch' (https://goo.gl/5qdWbJ) which is a FANTASTIC crime drama based in a small village in the South of England. The actors are brilliant and it has won lots of awards!

p.s if you are still reading this, comment with how many languages you speak :D
