    Another important tutorial for learners

    This is hard, admittedly. But if your goal is to perfectly understand casual AmE speech, it is one small thing you must master.

    Have you seen ISMO- a Finnish comedian talking about the English language. It's NSFW, but he can be very funny. You can find him on YouTube talking about the complexities and contradictions of our slang.

    I think you mean the one about "ass". If so, I am the one who first posted a link to it. You asked whether he had any others and the answer was regrettably not. But some time has passed. Perhaps there are more now.

    Coals to Newcastle. Sorry about that, but the one about sh*t is worth a spin.
