Abstract:

New Edition

This book provides a comprehensive account of conversation in English and its 
implications for the ELT classroom. After a general overview and definition of 
conversation it provides the reader with a systematic description of 
conversational English, from the vocabulary of conversation, to grammar, 
discourse and genre. This is followed by an informed account of the 
development of conversation in both first and second language acquisition. It 
then describes a range of methodological approaches, procedures and 
techniques for teaching conversation in English. On this basis, an integrated 
approach to the teaching of conversation is provided, along with practical 
classroom applications.
