Talking with Americans On and Off Campus
Conversations for Listening and Speaking
The book features 24 informal, idiom-rich dialogues between international students and their American friends. 12 are on college campuses and 12 could be on or off campus. The friends discuss issues of personal and cultural interest.
Learners listen and practice “talking like an American.” The practice activities are designed to help the learners practice using the suprasegmental system: stress, intonation, rhythm, linking, and phrasing. This is key to speaking intelligibly, to being understood, and to “accent reduction."
There is a strong focus on building appropriate vocabulary. American expressions and idioms are used in natural contexts.
Two audio CDs provide important listening and pronunciation work.
