Publisher's Description

REA’s English the American Way: A Fun ESL Guide to Language & Culture in the U.S. with Audio CD + MP3
Helps English Language Learners Improve Their Skills

A fun guide to everything American for the English language learner!

Authored by seasoned ESL instructors, this handy guidebook is perfect for people who already have a good grasp of English, but want to improve how they speak the language as it is spoken in the United States.

Written in a lighthearted and easy-to-follow style, this book is a great resource for people of all ages and all nationalities. Each unit introduces commonly used phrases, vocabulary, and verbs, and offers sample dialogs to illustrate everyday American life. Sentence completions, quizzes, tips, and illustrations make learning fun.

Individual units cover topics essential to the mosaic of American life: making friends, basic skills, driving, dining out, dealing with money, home life, emergency situations, doctor visits, handling a job interview, and more.

Our audio CD offers sample dialogs that present correct pronunciation using natural speech. The dialogues help English language learners practice their vocabulary and pronunciation skills. They’re also a great way to work on accent reduction.

As an added bonus, an MP3 file of the sample dialogues plus additional reading and pronunciation pointers is available online at www.rea.com.

If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to improve your English language skills, this is the book for you!

Author Bio

About the Authors

Sheila and Jane have been colleagues and friends for… well, let’s
just say a long time. As English as a Second Language (ESL)
teachers, they worked together on lots of projects… and had lots of
fun as they worked. A partnership was born!

Together, Jane and Sheila have teaching credentials in several
states and two continents. With years and years… and years… of
experience (they just don’t want to count them all, ha!), they have
taught ESL to little kids, big kids, university students, adults, company
executives, and other teachers in the U.S. and Europe (both
online and in regular classroom settings).

Both Sheila and Jane have served as members of the New Jersey
Department of Education Advisory Committee for ESL/Bilingual
Education. They’ve facilitated online ESL training courses for teachers
through the NJ DOE professional development program. Sheila
has held several leadership positions scoring teacher candidate responses
for an international testing company, and Jane has written
ESL test questions and rated English as a Foreign Language exams
for another internationally recognized testing company. (They teach,
they test, they score!)

They have won many awards for excellence in teaching, including
two Teacher of the Year awards, and corporate citations for excellence.
They’ve given numerous presentations and have written curriculum
and syllabi for diverse ESL populations. Add to this some fun
teaching projects in Spanish, public speaking, drama, writing… and,
we’re not kidding, even soccer skills and you’ve got two writers who
know how to have a good time writing a book!

Jane is now the Director of ESL Services for Emory College of Arts
and Sciences in Atlanta, Georgia. Sheila is a lecturer in the English
Language Program at the University of Pennsylvania, and continues
to teach, write and consult in New Jersey and New York. Although
they live several states away, both are happy to find time to work
together on fun projects… like this book!
