I've never come across that book.Hello,
Do you know the books by David Burke called "Street Talk - How to Speak and Understand American Slang" and "Slangman Guide to Street Speak" teaching American everyday colloquial speech and slang? I think that teachers should be familiar with them.
I was wondering if the idioms, slang and phonetic features described there are also used in British English, at least to some extent. Could someone knowledgeable comment on that? What I mean is--is it a good idea to use these books to practise everyday colloquial English when you actually use British English, not American English. For instance, would most of these American colloquial expressions be recognisable by British speakers? Would it be strange if you used these idioms and slang while using British English accent?
Do you perhaps know any similar books for learners describing British English "street talk"?
