English Down Under and Up Over
English Down Under and Up Over is the culmination of years of studying, learning, and communicating in English, which created the seed for writing this book. It is not a textbook, but laugh-out-loud stories peppered with idioms, oxymora, and correlated jokes. It is wittily written to illustrate the importance of knowing the multiple meanings of words, the variety of spellings, and the culture, making a difference between understanding or being lost in translation.

‘English is one of the most difficult languages to learn, because of the complexity, diversity, and confusing slang. Firooz skillfully demonstrates the difficulty of learning English in this happy read while providing hours of laughter in a world and time often filled with depressing news and negativity.’
Doug Hill, English Language School Ltd, Richmond, NZ

English Down Under and Up Over is a humorous and insightful analysis of the often ambiguous nature of the English language, written in a light-hearted and entertaining way, a counterpoint to Zadeh’s previous award winning books: The Journey – An Immigrant’s Story, depicting life in Iran and the USA, and Islam versus Terrorism - An Intimate View of Understanding Islam, the Culture of the Middle East, and Terrorism.’ Lindy Kelly, best selling New Zealand author of ‘Bold Blood’

‘What an interesting book to read! It made me laugh all the way to the end and much more aware when talking to a foreigner to speak more plainly.’ Bobbie Poll, New Zealand author

‘Had a real hoot reading English Down Under and Up Over - very enjoyable.’ Hon. Dr. Nick Smith, MP Nelson
