The Slangman Series
Slang, idioms, and colloquial speech are often the hardest aspects of a language to learn in a course, yet some of the most fun and creative parts to know, and they are indispensable to finding your way in a conversation or crowd. Slangman David Burke has created a series focusing on all the kinds of slang in number of different formats and languages: for English, Street Speak, Biz Speak, and for Spanish, French, and Italian, Street Spanish, Street French, and Street Italian. Filled
with amusing illustrations and humour, they make language learning fun and relevant at
the same time!
