Our new book Inglês de Rua – American Slang (authors: José Roberto A. Igreja and Robert C. Young) is out!
317 pages of “real English” and fun like you´ve never seen before.
It took us a long while to pull this one off, lots of research and careful analysis to get together only the very best: up-to-date and usual terms like THE NEW BLACK; WHAT THE FUCK; BREAK BAD; CUT SOMEONE SOME SLACK; FLIP THE BIRD; COCKBLOCK; BADMOUTH; A NO-NO; SELFIE … (over 900 slang terms!)
A great book to stay current with what Americans are saying these days.
