|"Having worked as a language teacher for over 20 years, I can feel that the old formula used in foreign language classrooms is no longer able to hold students' attention and interest. Speak English Like an American brings a lot of valuable information in context showing the relevance of everyday English in the fast-moving world of the Internet, and cable and satellite TV. While we were going through the lessons, students regularly told me they had heard this or that expression in a movie, song, or TV series." — Adalberto Barbosa, São Paolo, Brazil|
