ESL RESOURCE OF THE MONTH
Talking to others help build rapport, friendship and create social engagement. This is a great book if you're an ESL student and want to find more topics to talk to others about. Know someone who has a pet? Ask them questions like: Do you like cats? Do you prefer indoor cats or outdoor cats? Can you name a purebred long-haired cat? This is also a great book if you are a tutor or class instructor looking to engage your students in conversation and encourage them to build their speaking skills. Fun prompts include "Can you make the purr sound a happy cat makes? Have you ever reread a book? Which? Why? How many times?"
