This book is a compendium of useful and interesting information for teachers and learners of English as a Second Language. Although the book focuses on North American English, it will also be useful to teachers and students of other varieties of English. Teachers will find this book useful as a resource for developing material as they supplement, expand, replace, adapt, or develop from scratch a complete curriculum.
This one book does not contain everything that the teacher/materials developer needs to know, but we believe it is the most comprehensive one‑volume reference available to the lesson writer. In addition to its usefulness in developing materials, this book offers another function as a guideline/checklist for teachers who teach “a little of this and a little of that.” The problem with this kind of eclecticism, of course, is that it is not always easy to know if everything is being covered.
This book will not be able to tell teachers everything they need to know about North American English, but it can serve as a comprehensive outline. By consulting the list of Situations, for example, the teacher can rather quickly review which conversational situations have been covered and what remains to be covered.
