This book is designed for people who are learning English as a foreign language and wish to improve their use of English slang. This is the first set of 101 slang terms by the author. A second set, written in 2013, is also available.
This book contains 101 slang terms that are frequently used in English, arranged alphabetically. The slang terms are mild, i.e. they are not extremely offensive. However, some of the terms should be used carefully. For example, calling someone (particularly a stranger) a nosey parker to their face could provoke an undesirable response. On the other hand, referring to something as ‘ace’ should not cause any problems whatsoever.
Each slang term is provided with an example of its use. A short list of topics where the slang terms are often used is also provided. The examples are provided as answers to questions from the IELTS test, but the book can be used by any teenage or adult learner who is at intermediate or advanced level.

About the Author
I have been teaching English as a foreign language since 1990, mainly in the Czech Republic and China. I have written several books on IELTS that have been published in China, selling over 200,000 copies. My work has also been used to create various apps which have been downloaded tens of thousands of times. The books that I will be publishing on Smashwords are updates of my published works, modified for the international market. The majority of books will be in the 'English 101 Series' which has proven so popular in China. The cover photographs on the Smashwords editions are all by the author.
