P. C. Cast - Kristin Cast - Marked
The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire--that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. It's tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampyre friends.

Katona Lucia - Patthy Miklósné - Sarbu Éva - Angol teszt- és fordítási feladatok közép- és felsőfokon
A könyvet az Idegennyelvi Továbbképző Központ munkatársai állították össze, abból a célból, hogy a vizsgafeladatok megoldásához segítséget nyújtsanak. Valamennyi feladat az új vizsgarendszer normáit követi. Teljesen új ezek közül a felsőfokú feladat (feleletválasztós teszt és tömörítés), amelyhez gyakorló anyag eddig még nem jelent meg. Hasznosnak bizonyult a gyakorlati életben is a tömörítésben megkívánt készség fejlesztése (hosszabb magyar szöveg tartalmi ismertetése angol nyelven). Az 50 lépéses középfokú tesztet mint vizsgafeladatot ugyan nem tekinthetjük újnak, de egy könyvben összefoglalásuk eredeti. Valamennyi tesztfeladatban a felkínált négy választási lehetőség közül egy a jó. A középfokú idegennyelvű írás- és olvasáskészséget tesztelő "B" vizsgán szerepel még egy 500 n terjedelmű magyar szöveg fordítása idegen nyelvre. Ez a szöveg - ellentétben az előző vizsgarendszer különálló mondataival - összefüggő. Szókincse mindennapi, nyelvtani szerkezeteit illetően azonban tartalmasabb egy normál köznyelvi szövegnél. Ehhez, mint a feleletválasztós teszten kívül minden vizsgafeladathoz, szótár használható. A feladatok írója angol mintamegoldást ad valamennyi fordítási feladathoz.

But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control, and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present. Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, misfortune, malice and fate combine to make Ana’s worst nightmares come true. Alone and desperate, she must face down the poisoned legacy of Christian’s past. Seductive, shocking, sad and funny, Fifty Shades Freed is the compelling final volume in the Fifty Shades trilogy.
