From the Author:

Why do you want to learn English? Are you planning on entering an excellent university or meeting new international friends? Are you looking to make more money with international business or travel? Do you want a better job, a high TOEFL score, or a nursing career? In all these situations, speaking clear English and creating good conversations can open many doors for you around the world. This conversation textbook will gently push you to develop many vital skills: * Speak English * Listen to English * Respond to both questions and comments * Ask questions * Learn and use new vocabulary words * Paraphrase proverbs * Discuss quotations * Make judgments * Support statements and opinions * Develop critical thinking skills <* Begin conversations with native English speakers We learn by talking and listening to each other. We learn by doing and practicing. Sometimes we have short talks; sometime we have long conversations. Together, we will talk about many things in English and discuss many topics in this class in English. We will ask questions in English. We will answer questions in English, too. We will use simple and more difficult words in English. We learn traditional sayings and modern expressions. We will learn--and use-- new English vocabulary words in our conversation class. Step by step, we will know more English words and how to ask more questions so we can build better conversations in English. Learning to speak English requires us to speak English in every class. So, we will talk about our present lives and reflect on our past experiences in interview and small group discussions. We will also share our hopes and plans for the future. By telling our personal stories and sharing our ideas, we will also create compelling conversations together--in English.
Shall we begin? Eric Roth and Toni Aberson Co-authors, Compelling Conversations: Questions and Quotations on Timeless Topics

About the Author:

Eric H. Roth teaches international graduate students the pleasures and perils of academic writing and public speaking in English at the University of Southern California (USC). Given a full scholarship as a Lilly Scholar, Roth studied philosophy and American history at Wabash College (1980-1984), and received his MA in Media Studies from the New School (1988). Since 1992, Roth has taught English to high school, community college, adult, and university students. Career highlights include: teaching the first Saturday morning citizenship class in Santa Monica (1994); directing the CES Adult Education Center (1995-1998); working with international students in summer IEP programs at UCLA Extension (1997-2000, 2003-2005); teaching USC engineering students in Madrid, Spain (2007) and Paris, France (2008); and directing the APU International High School in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2009). Roth co-authored Compelling Conversations: Questions and Quotations on Timeless Topics in 2007 to help English language learners increase their fluency in English. Recommended by English Teaching Professional magazine, the advanced ESL textbook has been used in over 50 countries in English classrooms and conversation clubs. He founded Chimayo Press in 2007 to create English textbooks for sophisticated global souls. A member of the USC faculty since 2003, Roth is a member of numerous professional organizations including: CATESOL; ICA; the International Professors Project (IPP); and TESOL. Roth has given several CATESOL and TESOL conference presentations and led many teacher training workshops. 

Toni Aberson taught English to adult, university, and high school students for 35 years. She also supervised high school English teachers for 15 years, and believes that a lively classroom is the optimal learning environment. In 2011, Aberson authored another book for ESL students. It's a Breeze: 42 Lively Lessons on American Idioms which focuses on real life expressions and situations.
