    Get a Picture Dictionary and use it to learn all words for all the things that are
    in your daily life.

    Then, to help you with verbs, the natural verbs we use daily for speech, get a Longmans "Essential Activator". You can see it at the link below. Check the Amazon site in your own country for availability and price.

    Aw, that seems to be a quite expensive way of learning.

    I don't know what the books would cost in your respective countries, B, but they would be the best buys you could make.

    The Activator is $30 US and

    $30 would be about 1,500 pesos here in my country, that would be my meal budget for about 12 days or more...and $15 would be of course half the price, about 750 pesos, 6 days meal budget.

    * But I was hoping to purchase a book and audio cd package; about English Fluency, grammar and idioms, for 1,750 pesos soon.

    * That may cost me an arm and a leg, but I think it would be worth the bargain. Nothing is cheap nowadays.
