“I don’t want to speak PERFECT English, I just want to communicate, even if it’s in broken English.” Responding to such plaintive laments from many English beginners, this long-selling book now comes re-packaged with a CD to enhance user-friendliness. Drawing hints from the “abbreviated speech forms” that native speakers use, the author introduces very short, useful phrases, for example the word “please” followed by the word for whatever you are trying to get, or a declarative sentence followed by the word “OK?” as a way to confirm that it is possible.
