Extracts from this document...


Speaking and Listening If I could have a 'one 2 one' with anyone in the world, I would talk to Malcolm Rose. If you don't know who he is, he has written many books and has received many awards. He was born in Coventry in 1953. He has a wife, Barbara, and a son, Colin, who is now 24 years old.
