Making Out in English is a fun, accessible and thorough English phrase book and guide to the English language as it's really spoken.

English classes and textbooks tend to spend a lot of time rehearsing for the same fictitious scenarios but chances are while in America or England you will spend a lot more time trying to make new friends or start new romances—something you may not be prepared for.

If you are a student, businessman or tourist traveling to the English speaking world and would like to have an authentic and meaningful experience, the key is being able to speak like a local. This friendly and easy-to-use English phrasebook makes this possible.

  • A guide to pronouncing English words correctly.
  • Explanations of basic English grammar.
  • Complete translations.
  • Useful and interesting notes on the English language and culture.
