Next, you will hear the dialogue a second time. But this time, the dialogue will be presented at normal speed in order for you to get a realistic idea of how Americans really speak. In this second version of the dialogue, you will also hear all the popular contractions and reductions American use every day. And you can follow right along in your book because SLANGMAN shows you the dialogue also written in Real Speak! After the dialogue, SLANGMAN lets you hear the entire vocabulary section right from the book. That way, you get the opportunity to hear real American pronunciation again. And just like the dialogues, you will hear each usage example spoken slowly once, and then up to native speed! Finally, you will hear exercises from each chapter as ear training and a great way to practice speaking like an American!
