As in all language courses, the "slang", or local common conversations are not always part of the lessons. A must have if learning the Scottish accent. I have it on an ebook and in paperback to flip to pages to compare words with similar meanings. One person found this helpful.

It's a dictionary of the common street language, slang and everyday lingo you'd heard in Glasgow, etc. Some of it is bawdy, some of it is pretty insulting, but it's all part of the culture. Just don't forget to turn "oot" the lights when your done. This book is a newer version of the one I had someone in Glasgow send me years ago. I bought it for my Uncle's birthday as he was born there. I thought I'd get him his own.

While it does contain some of the old school terms, it's mostly new-speak. Good fun to read, but it would be really good to have a lot of the older stuff there that I have been using my whole life on my friends and colleagues. I could actually point to a reputable reference to show them what it means!
