The problems of learning a new language! A group of recent immigrants in an introductory English class. Remember that this was written in the 1930's so the situations are a little different, but this will keep you in stitches. A great read for a dreary day!!!

This was an excellent book. I highly recommend it to everyone, especially anyone who has ever wanted (or needed) a gentle reminder not to judge a book by its cover. Kaplan is a lovable character, and his perseverance is a fine example for us all.
