Testimonials: "Finally there's a course in conversational English that's devoted to American English idioms. It's no secret that American English uses all types of idioms, and mastery of these expressions is a weak link in mastery of English. This new book addresses this shortcoming. It's very well designed, practical, and will serve as a great support for those who want to master contemporary conversational English. "Speak English Like an American" will significantly improve a student's understanding of contemporary English, will broaden the student's vocabulary, and will enable the student to better assimilate in today's America." - Dr. Vladimir Mylnikov, Defense Language Institute, Monterey, California "I like the way this book is put together. The topics of the lessons are realistic: they use the most common expressions from contemporary life. For each idiom there's a definition with examples, and the exercises and drawings help one better understand and remember the meaning of the idioms, so one can use them correctly when speaking. I know this book will be an interesting and useful resource for those who want to perfect their knowledge of American English." -Gita Vulakh, NYANA (New York Association for New Americans) About the author: Amy Gillett has taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in Prague, Czech Republic and in Stamford, Connecticut.
