American Slang on Video
There is no final frontier to English because it keeps changing and growing. Slang keeps pushing the frontier outward. Teacher Jennifer Recio Lebedev describes slang as "like a pair of flip flops. They're comfortable and easy to put on...but not right for every situation." JenniferESL's videos on YouTube help learners understand spoken slang and know when to use it. They also make a pleasant, productive diversion in an ESL lesson. Watching the very brief lessons could also make useful homework assignments. Remember: homework can be anything that gives the learner a chance to hear, speak, read or write English between lessons. Thanks for helping someone by tutoring.
