5.0 out of 5 stars easy and fun 30 Dec 2009
By englishfellow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've bought this book for fun. My english is pretty good enough but, sometimes when it comes to talking with local people who normally use a lot of slangs, I have some difficulties understanding their words-slangs. I'm reading this book at the moment. But, do not expect this book to be english studying guide. It is just to help you know lots of slangs which make you speak english more fluently.
