Perfect resource for conversation classes. It is obvious that a lot of thought has gone into this book and it is full of interesting and stimulating questions unlike the many websites which offer pages and pages of questions about all kinds of topics but which are always full of repetitions, bizarre questions, conversation killers, grammatical and spelling mistakes and overall mediocrity. Highly recommended.
The english level is less than I expect. In the book description the level was not so clear. I would kindly suggest to add piece of words abour book content and level on book description part. I expected a book more beneficial to my conversation skills but indeed it was not. Also the irregular words and phrases (bonus) parts were so short. I expected something longer and more comprehensive.
Una serie di domande su diversi topic specifici, niente di più. Puo' considerarsi un punto di partenza per instaurare una conversazione ma non fornisce altri strumenti, per esempio su come fare in modo che gli studenti partecipino.
A very useful resource to use, both in a class and one-to-one situation, as a warm up on, or introduction to the chosen topic of the lesson as well as a gap fill in those moments when things go quiet and your mind draws a blank. A book for a busy teacher to have to hand at all times.
5つ星のうち4.0Great book, really takes the stress away!
I recently purchased "FUEL for a lively Conversation in English" and found it to be exactly what it says it is. It kicks starts any class and the topics are up-to-date. I highly recommend this book as it takes vertical bilingualism (Diglossia) to a new level. It covers most topics and it's closing bonuses are spot on - irregular verbs and top idiomatic expressions. It's only downfall, in my opinion, is that there are no page numbers to identify where you are.

This book is fabulous! I work with an ESL student and want to encourage her to talk, but I can never come up with good subjects. This book allows me to choose a subject like family or work, and gives a number of questions to ask to keep the conversation going. I plan to pick a different subject each week!!
