Compelling Conversations – Vietnam: Speaking Exercises for Vietnamese Learners of English
Authors: Theresa Nguyen, Eric H. Roth
“Compelling Conversations is a text that encourages multiculturalism, that is flexible enough to use for all ages of advanced English language learners, and that gives a personally relevant, tailored experience for advanced Vietnamese ELLs to formulate their opinions in anticipation of present and future communications with English speakers…. I recommend this book as a backbone for a lively conversation class.”
