Street Talk 1: How to Speak and Understand American Slang
Street Talk 1 contains more than 1,150 commonly used American slang terms and expressions…the words and phrases heard everyday that don't always make sense. If you are confused by American English and would like to speak and understand like a native, you need to read this book!
Street Talk 1 is the first self-teaching book on American slang that is written for the non-native speaker. Readers will learn the "inside" language that is heard in everyday conversations, at the movies, on the radio, and seen in books, magazines, and advertisements. This often mysterious language of slang and idioms is clearly explained through dialogues, pronunciation tips, word games, and illustrations.
Street Talk 2: Slang Used by Teens, Rappers, Surfers, & Popular American Television Shows
Street Talk 2 takes a close look at teen, rap, and surfer slang, as well as everyday slang used consistently in popular American television shows, traffic reports, news broadcasts, television weather reports, and sports broadcasts, which are of special importance to non-native speakers who are trying to integrate into our culture.
Street Talk 2 is a self teaching guide divided into four parts:
Dialogue: Twenty to thirty new American expressions and terms (indicated in boldface) are presented as they may be heard in an actual conversation. A translation of the dialogue in standard English is always given on the opposite page followed by an important phonetic version of the dialogue as it would actually be spoken by an America. This page will prove vital to any non-native since, as previously demonstrated, Americans tend to rely heavily on contractions and shortcuts in pronunciation.
Vocabulary: This section spotlights all of the slang words and expressions that were used in the dialogue and offers more examples of usage, synonyms, antonyms, and special notes.
Practice the Vocabulary: These word games include all of the new terms and idioms previously learned and will help you to test yourself on your comprehension. (The pages providing the answers to all the drills are indicated at the beginning of this section.)
A Closer Look: This section offers the reader a unique look at common words used in slang expressions pertaining to a specific category such as Rhyming Slang, Exclamations Used in Cartoons and Comic Books, Foreign Words Used in Everyday Speech, Popular College Slang, etc.
Whether you're a parent who wants to understand the most popular slang used by the youth of today, a non-native speaker who is lost every time he/she turns on the televisions, or even a teen who has been accused of being "uncool" or "square," Street Talk 2 will quickly unravel the "inside language" of slang that has always been reserved for specific groups…until now!
