King of the Hill: An American Animated Classic

“King of the Hill,” an American animated sitcom created by Mike Judge and Greg Daniels, first aired on Fox in 1997 and continued until 2009, with a few additional episodes in 2010. Set in the fictional town of Arlen, Texas, the show revolved around the Hill family, led by protagonist Hank Hill, who works at Strickland Propane. Alongside Hank are his wife Peggy, son Bobby, niece Luanne, and loyal bloodhound Ladybird. The series humorously explores the lives of the Hills and their eclectic cast of neighbors and friends, highlighting the humor in everyday situations.

Judge conceived the show during his time working on “Beavis and Butt-Head.” Paired with experienced writer Greg Daniels, the show quickly gained popularity, becoming one of Fox’s longest-running series with a total of 259 episodes over 13 seasons. Its realistic approach to humor resonated with audiences, leading to global syndication and a dedicated fan base. The show’s success was further solidified by critical acclaim, earning two Emmy Awards and multiple nominations.

Featuring a range of celebrity guest stars and addressing various themes, “King of the Hill” was recognized by Time magazine in 2007 as one of the greatest TV shows of all time. The show’s legacy continues, with Judge and Daniels announcing a revival through their new company, Bandera Entertainment, in 2022. Hulu picked up the revival in 2023, signaling the return of this beloved animated classic to the screens, delighting fans old and new.

Angeline Pompei Releases Vocabulary Word Search Book for Portuguese Speakers

New ‘Learn English Fast’ bilingual book engages Portuguese-speaking adults through activity-based methods.

Published

on

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario (Newswire.com) – Language-learning innovator Angeline Pompei is pleased to announce a new ESL book in her Learn English Fast® series, a Portuguese edition featuring vocabulary word searches for Portuguese speakers. The line-by-line translation book, one line in English and the next in Portuguese, allows adults to learn English vocabulary through word search activities. 

Angeline Pompei is the creator behind the Learn English Fast® brand, continuing her goal to release new books with instructional materials designed uniquely for adult learners. The new Portuguese book underscores her comprehensive approach to infusing English learning into everyday leisure activities. Pompei’s first book in the series is a songbook encouraging people to embrace learning English through music. 

The vocabulary word search book helps transform the way Portuguese-speaking adults learn English. Guided by Pompei’s pedagogical method, the book makes learning English an engaging and fun activity rather than a tedious task. A learner develops spelling skills when searching for words and memory retention by repetitively spelling the words, audibly or internally.  

“I created Learn English Fast® to share what worked for me, and my books allow me to share it with the other-speaking world more easily than ever,” said Angeline Pompei. “Now, native Portuguese speakers can use my new book as an effective way to learn English.” 

The Learn English Fast® Portuguese edition incorporates learning English through practical interaction in a way that integrates someone’s leisure time, making the process less daunting for adult learners who find it challenging to learn a language. Through its uniquely crafted resources, the series of books offers a transformational change to the traditional way of learning English, reflecting Angeline Pompei’s foundational principle of crafting interactive and fun learning experiences.  

“A person can have more opportunities for a job by learning English,” she said. “Anyone with a business can sell products online and offer services to people in other countries. Learning English helps people change their and their family’s future. That is a big reason I created Learn English Fast®, to help people have better lives.”  

Angeline Pompei’s complete bilingual book series is now already available in English/SpanishEnglish/FrenchEnglish/Polish, English/Italian, and English/Portuguese.
