American Slang

I've found that most ESL students like to learn one way of saying something, this is most likely because they are afraid of making mistakes. I try to get my students to loosen up a bit and try out some new phrases.  It's a work in progress, but yesterday I received a few books in the mail that might very well help me accomplish this mission.  They are Conversational American English from McGraw-Hill and 101 American English Idioms from McGraw-Hill.  I just received them both and so I intend to try them out in my classes next week. Both books are full of funny sayings that we use on a daily basis in the States.  I hope the students will like learning something other than Business English.
