    Visitors coming to America for the first time seem to have a common complaint: ‘‘What are the natives saying?! This isn’t the English I learned in school!” Anyone visiting or living in America is bound to encounter a confusing yet popular “inside” language used by the inhabitants; slang and idioms. This is an ever-changing, ever-evolving language which is like a code that tends to segregate non-native speakers. Street Talk rl and Street Talk -2, also by David Burke, are designed to open these seemingly closed doors quickly and help the non-native speaker integrate into American culture. However, after learning everyday American slang and idioms, the business traveler is faced with an additional obstacle which must be conquered in order to transact business effectively in America.
