Lamda examinations in spoken English

19th May 2000 at 01:00
Lamda (the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) has been running examinations in spoken English for more than 100 years. Its latest Anthology of Verse and Prose brings together test pieces that cover all levels from group speaking by juniors to challenging classical and contemporary extracts for teachers seeking a diploma. No obvious themes emerge because of the emphasis on increasing complexity of technque - but this is an engaging collection that bears out Robert Frost's contention that "words exist in the mouth, not in books". Lamda Anthology of Verse and Prose (Volume XV) Oberon Books pound;12. ISBN 84002 120 9. Available from bookshops or from Lamda, 226 Cromwell Road, London SW5 0SR. Tel: 020 7373 4337. Fax: 020 7370 4739. E-mail: Website:
