Format: Paperback
ESL teacher Marianna Pascal presents Say It Better in English: Useful Phrases for Work & Everyday Life, a supplementary self-study guide for anyone learning English as a second language. Say It Better in English offers more than 300 American English phrases commonly used at work, on the phone, at the store, or with friends and co-workers. Each phrase has a straightforward definition, has two different sentences using the phrase in context, and an illuminating black-and-white cartoon showing the phrase in action. For example, the phrase "in a row" has the definition "one thing directly after another thing" and a cartoon of a man saying "You were late 3 days last week, and 3 days in a row this week," while pointing to a calendar with three consecutive days marked. Simple crossword puzzles to help the reader practice their new vocabulary round out this invaluable guide to adopting and understanding fluent American English speech patterns.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By S. A. Jones on July 24, 2009
Format: Paperback
The format of this book makes learning the phrases a lot of fun. The cartoons are delightful, the definitions are clear and concise, and the examples are clearly from everyday life. I also like the addition of grammar points such as where to put pronouns as opposed to nouns in two-word (or more) verb phrases. I was disappointed not to find an index. However, the Phrase Guide for this book, which is available free from the publisher's website, lists the expressions in alphabetical order, to which page numbers can be added as a person works through the book. Overall, I think this is a charming text which learners of English as a Second Language will find easy and fun to use.

As opposed to many books in this line, this one is quite fun to read and goes really smooth. It is full of everyday expressions. It might be particularly useful for ESL intermediate learners I guess.
