"There is something for everyone in this fun approach to English as a second language, intended for use by instructors in a classroom setting or by individual intermediate learners. There is a specific focus on idioms and dialogue, making this a highly practical work."
About the Book:
A wonderful guide to colloquial “Americanisms” and cultural practices. This completely new book helps familiarize immigrants and ESL learners with American culture and language in a fun, lighthearted way. Readers will learn about everything from finding a job and locating an organic grocery store to facts about American culture and enjoying the night life. Each chapter includes new vocabulary and idioms that are common in the U.S.A., as well as fun activities such as true or false questions, crosswords, matching games, “Write It Down,” “Stop and Think,” “Story Time,” and more that help reinforce the lessons. There are also 2–4 dialogues in each chapter that show how people speak conversationally, with new vocabulary and idioms to learn and practice. Accompanying audio for each dialogue helps listeners learn how to speak just like Americans. An answer key is included at the back of the book.
