The Slangman Guide to STREET SPEAK 2 continues where STREET SPEAK 1 leaves off by presenting dialogues in context using more slang words and idioms spoken by virtually everyone!
If an American said to you, Could you please crack the window? — you are NOT being asked to “break the window” which is indeed the literal meaning! You are simply being asked to “Open the window a little.” Or if someone tells you to Knock it off! or Cut it out! — that just means “Stop doing that!”
The Slangman Guide to STREET SPEAK 2 is the next book in the series which not only offers dialogues using slang and idioms, but it also presents the new “SLANGMAN FILES.” In this section, you’ll find lists of slang and idioms by category such as “Fruits and Vegetables,” “Car and On-the-Road,” “Body Parts,” “Colors,” and so much more! And idioms, when interpreted literally, can be confusing, even hilarious!

- The Workplace
- Birthday Parties
- The Subway
- Aches & Pains
