One of the most important things for the student of English to know is what to say on encountering a native speaker. Confidently saying the right thing at the right moment is the way to make a good first impression, and it is first impressions that are the ones that are remembered. The questions and answers that are exchanged in meeting and greeting are basically ritualised: they need to be learnt.
This book covers introductions, visiting people`s homes, small talk, going out in the evening and socialising at work.
This new version of Social English by Ken Wilson is written in S4 phonetic text so that the learner knows not only what to say but also how to pronounce it. The dialogues correspond to British English, hence the crown symbol on the pages.
