Getting Ready for Speech Wins International Acclaim

Getting Ready for Speech, a basic level speech and presentation text, won recognition in the Education/Academic/Teaching category of the 20th annual Independent Publisher Book Awards. Of the three finalists, only Getting Ready for Speech was an EFL/ESL textbook. A spokesperson for the publisher, Japan-based Language Solutions, said "This award is really ironic. The last unit of Getting Ready for Speech features speeches on giving and receiving awards." The book was co-authored by David Harrington and Charles LeBeau, both veteran teachers in Japan. Awards were presented at BookExpo America in New York.
