American Manners and Customs 3

Eardley Publications

All three of American Manners and Customs books by Elizabeth Claire are for adult and young adult newcomers or visitors to the United States.

Twenty 2-page chapters are written at an intermediate to high intermediate level. American Manners and Customs is slightly more difficult than American Manners and Customs-2. Difficult words are explained in simple English in a Word Help section at the back of the book. Each chapter has two pages of open ended questions to use in your classroom or to discuss with your friends. Self-checking activities will help learners to increase their vocabulary.

  • Are you a newcomer to the United States?
  • Do American customs confuse you?
  • Do you want to know what's going on?
  • Do you wonder what to say?
