Updated with additional commonly–used phrases, new questions and answers for practice and review, and lis–
tening aids such as find–the–word boxes, jumbled words, and crosswords, the new edition of this informal lan–
guage–learning program is designed to teach Hispanics in the United States 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 cor–
rect pronunciation includes helpful tips and advice on pronunciation and listening comprehension. The optional
audio CDs use spoken dialogues and coaching to emphasize correct pronunciation of informal American English.
This expanded and updated intermediate–level language program is designed to help Spanish speakers gain
proficiency in American English. It is an ideal follow–up and self–teaching guide for Hispanics who have mas–
tered Level 1, but it can also be helpful to anyone who already has some basic knowledge of English. The book
can be purchased alone, or with optional compact discs that present dramatized bilingual dialogues and extra
help in pronunciation and listening comprehension.
