Updated with additional commonly-used phrases, new questions and answers for practice and review, and listening aids such as find-the-word boxes, jumbled words, and crosswords, the new edition of this informal language-learning program is designed to teach Hispanics in the United States and Canada a practical working knowledge of English. Author William Harvey bypasses the dull rules of grammar, instead familiarizing readers with often-used phrases and including a series of informal conversations among speakers in idiomatic American English. Also included are tables that present commonly-used English verbs and verb tenses. Emphasis on correct pronunciation includes helpful tips and advice on pronunciation and listening comprehension. The optional audio CDs replace the second edition's audio cassettes. They use spoken dialogues and coaching to emphasize correct pronunciation of informal American English.
