Kaleidomundi
Free sample

One-Eyed Princess shows the journey of a stereoblind person with amblyopia and strabismus doing eye muscle and brain exercises to straighten her eyes and rewire her brain to wake up dormant binocular brain cells to see in 3D. Along the way to seeing the world in more detail and appreciating depth, Susanna learned not only to see the physical world anew but also to feel reborn into a new inner world.

Language is Music focuses on making learning foreign languages fun, easy and affordable for anyone with a desire to communicate effectively with people around the world. By applying over 100 simple tips to things you already do, such as listening to music or surfing the Web, you can experience the joy of "fluency" in any language without having to study abroad or spend money on private tutors. In Language is Music, Susanna Zaraysky masterfully shares her listening methods so that anyone can have fun learning any language. With over 100 tips and 100 free or low-cost Internet resources, you will learn how to use daily activities, such as watching T.V. or listening to music; conversation partners; and attendance at cultural events to become a masterful speaker of any tongue. "Learning foreign languages is like learning to sing a song or play music," says self-made linguist Susanna Zaraysky and author of Language is Music. Zaraysky has what you might call "an ear" for languages, having used music to successfully learn English, Russian, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Serbo-Croatian-all with excellent accents.

Advance Praise for Language is Music
"I love it! I think it will help people who want to learn, and those who are curious about additional language learning. Many people want to learn a language but are frightened, or disappointed by the courses they have taken. Reading Language is Music will encourage them to try again, on their own and with friendly supporters." -Dr. Elba Maldonado-Colon, Professor Department of Elementary Education Bilingual Program, San Jose State University

LET IT JUST ROLL OFF YOUR TONGUE. With lyrical insight and solid experience, Susanna Zaraysky, author of Language is Music, provides easy steps for learning a language. Gone are the boring, disconnected strategies that most of us remember from school. You've never learned a language this quickly and easily. Zaraysky's methods embody fun, connection, rhythm, and above all...music. -Suzanne Lettrick, M.Ed Educator and Founder of The Global Education and Action Network

"Forget dictionaries and phrase books . . . Susanna Zaraysky's easy-to-use guide to language learning is indispensable for any serious language learner wanting to become fluent--not just conversationally proficient--in another language. Language is Music will teach you how to make language acquisition a part of your daily life, and to recreate the kind of total-immersion environment necessary for fluency. Highly recommended reading for aspiring polyglots. Pick up this book and you too will be all ears!" -Justin Liang, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese, Marshallese, intermediate Spanish

Back in France, I spent many years learning "academic" English in school. But I progressed much faster when I forced myself to listen to the BBC or not look at the subtitles when watching an American movie. I wish I had Susanna's book with me then. It's full of creative ideas and practical tips that are indispensable complements to the traditional methods of learning foreign languages -- and it's coming from someone you can trust, she speaks so many of them! -Philippe Levy, French native speaker

This book is great. It showed me another aspect and a new approach of learning a language. I will put the book to good use. As a foreign English speaker, I spent many years at school learning English and did not make much progress. A lot of the tips that I read in this book, I learned them with time. However if I had read this book earlier, it would have made my life much easier and I would have saved so much time. I am going to apply the tips in Language is Music into learning a third language: Spanish. This time, I am sure I will make huge progress much faster. Not only is Language is Music useful in acquiring a foreign language, but the resources and websites in the book are valuable for someone who wants to travel abroad. -Fabien Hsu, French native speaker

An optometric practice can be an intimidating environment at the best of times. Initially it will look like utter chaos. Calls have to be taken, patients have to be attended to, payments received, medical aids phoned, appointments scheduled and a whole horde of other duties performed whilst appearing calm and in control.  This course is aimed at providing you with the skills and knowledge to deal with this situation in a confident manner.  By improving your knowledge base you will enable yourself to handle any situation and enjoy your chosen career.

It is amazing how a business can operate without properly trained staff. Poor service, rude and inefficient personnel seem to be the standard. How often have you stood in front of someone waiting to be attended to while they carry on with a private call, reading a magazine or eating their lunch? Ever noticed how an entire person can hide behind a phone?

What draws a person back to a specific practice? An environment where they feel welcome, important and above all where they are treated by professionals.

Always remember that it is stressful to be in an unfamiliar environment - people are scared of the unknown, and YOU have to reassure them and make them feel comfortable.  They should view their eye care professional as a personal friend. Turn the appointment into a pleasant and fun experience. People enjoy going back to their favourite haunts with family and friends – make the visit to the optometrist one of these.

With this course emphasis will be placed on professional etiquette, product information, visual aberrations, diseases of the eye, different personality types and how to deal with them, frame styling and sales.

You are on the frontline and without efficient and professional reception staff no practice can be successful.
