简介

INTRODUCTION
Millions of foreigners come to America every year on business
and vacation. Unfortunately, most of them pay more attention
to packing their suitcases than to how they are going to com-
municate once they arrive.
In today's sophisticated world. a person can no longer consider
himself prepared to communicate in a foreign society by know-
ing just some basic "survival" phrases. A much broader, diver-
sified knowledge of the English language is now required to op-
erate smoothly in the modern, high-tech information society in
which we live.
Cultural differences can also further complicate communica-
tion. Would you be capable of speaking the necessary and ap-
propriate English in the following situations?
Reporting a car accident
having a problcm going through customs
describing a sickness to an American doctor
staying with an American family
reporting a crime to the police
making arrangements with a travel agent
talking to a telephone operator
requesting repair work on a car
asking for directions complimenting an American women
The ideal solution would be to have a personal traveling com-
panion who could always tell you exactly what to say in every
situation.
This book, "EVERYDAY (ENGLISH) MINI-PHRASES
1660," is designed to be just that - a constant ESL reference
companion to quickly give you the information you need -
when you need it. With over 100 quick-reference topics, 1660
mini-phrases, and 1500 vocabulary words, you'll be able to
find the right things to say for almost every situation you can
think of.
Even if you can speak English fairly well, the organization of
the information in this book makes it an indispensable reference
tool for studying the English language. Everything you need to
function competently in the U. S. is right here.
