English the American Way: A Fun ESL Guide to Language and Culture in the U.S. is your very own ... well, guide, to... yes, American language and culture . You’ll find tons (a lot!) of vocabulary, all of it used in real-life ways.
Each unit has a main topic divided into two or three cultural readings. In these readings and the dialogues that follow, you’ll find real English, not the simplified language you find in most ESL books. The units are full of vocabulary and informal language—tons of idioms, phrasal verbs and slang—bold within the text, then listed at the end of each section with a simple explanation. Listen to the audio for native speaker pronunciation of the dialogues, then play it again to practice!
Look for grammar reminders, idiomatic expressions, culture tips, and fun facts. Oh, and don’t forget to check your understanding (and memory ) with the special review sections. You’ll find them after every three units.
Good luck, and have fun!
