A grammar reference practice with 5 levels, New Grammar Time is specially written for learners in Primary and mid-secondary schools for use either in the classroom or at home. The lower levels of New Grammar Time has simplified grammar boxes and an oral activity at the end of each unit which gives students plenty of opportunity to use the language. New Grammar Time can also be used as a supplement to any course book. The Teacher's Book expands into a resource file and includes photocopiable activities that help the teacher to deliver lively and varied lessons.
Once, computer game music was a cute joke. In 1984, it became art. The Commodore 64 home computer was the first to contain a full analog synthesizer. A new generation of composers started their musical careers, and computer music was changed forever. "Back In Time" is dedicated to Commodore heroes past and present: Rob Hubbard, Martin Galway, Ben Daglish, Fred Gray, Tim Follin, Jeroen Tel, David Whittaker, Jonathan Dunn, Charles Deenen, Chris Huelsberg, Bogg, Ratt, Jackal… they made C64 more than a computer: they made it an experience. These CDs are for those who support the rebirth of a computer that surpassed the relatively lowly level of its technology: the rebirth of a computer that never died.
Having spent most of his time since the late '90s re-appropriating pop, funk, rock, and fusion elements into his progressive jazz albums, bassist Christian McBride makes a joyously off the cuff return to straight-ahead acoustic jazz on 2006's New York Time.
