Summary

Summary

A complete advanced English as a second language (ESL) course in American slang, this book presents a story about four 20-something characters in 30 short dialogues. Each dialogue is followed by classroom-tested questions that help students master the new terms. The story aids in the recall of slang terms and their meanings, and provides usage examples appropriate to social contexts. The book includes a glossary, a dictionary of slang terms introduced, pronunciations, and sample sentences.
