They are techniques that help the speaker and listener keep a conversation going to its natural and desired conclusion. They are skills that supplement the linguistic and sociolinguistic skills most texts focus on: To develop strategic competence, students must learn the words, phrases, and conventions used as two speakers engage in the active give-and-take of conversation.

These are the strategies we use to get more information, make comparisons, correct someone politely, agree and disagree, summarize, share information, and make decisions in a business meeting. Students also practice polite forms, rejoinders, clarifications, follow-up questions, getting a response, expressing probability, interrupting, and avoiding conversation killers. Each activity has three parts: Each fun, student-centered activity begins with controlled language and moves to open, imaginative exchanges.

The work is enjoyable for students and teacher. Easy to use in any intermediate level class. Read more Read less. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1.

I have been using this book with an ESL student who recently moved to the US who was intent on proving their conversation skills. Clnversation book fit her needs perfectly.

David Kehe (Author of Conversation Strategies)

I’d recommend this book as a resource for developing one’s own lessons using the strategies and activities they suggest and adapting them to the needs and interests of students. I use this as a companion to a task based approach to language teaching and it works wonders. I highly recommend it. Perhaps the only criticism of this book that I could add is that occasionally some of the language used seems a bit inauthentic to me. The overall approach and activities suggested, though, have worked very well for me.

One person found this helpful. I found this book very useful for teaching the skills for making and maintaining or stopping a conversation. There is an introductory exercise led by the teacher with “Teacher Notes” in the backin which they fill in the blanks with phrases from a “word bank”. Following that the students do a variety of pairs-work activities.

I began using this book back in as a beginning teacher in South Korea. I found myself back in the EFL field after a long hiatus and needed this book as I am in Japan now teaching all levels.

This book fills a gap in the EFL literature body as it focuses on how to develop relatively uncomplicated and succinct verbiage for carrying out and especially for initiating conversation. Good product, as expected. I appreciate the many exercises that organize and develop speaking patterns and strategies for language learning.

This book helps take the load off of the teacher. The games can be easily adapted to content and student level. A great teaching tool to have in the library of an ESL teacher. I use this book and “Discussion Strategies” in conjunction with “Conversation Strategies”. I like both books. These books are not the text books for my class, but I use the material in the two books to help my students effectively create their own shrategies conversations with each other and learn how to communicate effectively through asking and answering questions.


I highly recommend getting both of them. This book is great for convedsation or teaching English to intermediate or advanced learners of English.

It covers topics that you forget, like how to agree or disagree with an opinion someone has suggested. It is funny as a native speaker to read these topics and realize I use these words and phrases everyday, but I would never before think to teach them to students learning to speak English.

The book also gives ideas, activities, and worksheets for teaching and learning the topics. Especially when they want you to teach “conversation. Also, this book is great for corners, when you sit around and just speak English: See all 11 reviews.
