Let's face it: There's no time like the present to learn English. It's the world's most widely spoken language. It permeates nearly every aspect of our daily lives. Mastering pronunciation, figures of speech, and idioms are just a few of the challenges students may face.
Even so, learning to actually use American English comfortably isn't among the easiest of tasks, Author Jeannie Yang hopes to help with that. Numbered lessons and regimented exercises only serve to make an already daunting task seem impossible. They don't help, so they aren't welcome in this book. Professor Jeannie Yang has takes a new approach to learning conversational English--inviting you to the conversation!
Written in the form of a movie screenplay, these fictional scenarios innovatively invite you to actively engage in conversations on a variety of subjects and in a variety of settings. As you speak their words, you can imagine that you are one of the characters--and you'll be learning at the same time.
