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.
