Conversation-Based Learning

An education should be preparation for life, and life is not a grammar test.

Gunther Breaux has taught English conversation to Korean university freshmen for 20 years.

His method is Conversation-Based Learning. Conversation is the class, and the test. There is no smaller unit.

Listening, reading, writing, vocabulary and pronunciation are speaking preparation, and also improve.

When all those skills improve, so do standardized test scores.

It's a complete system.

Below are three books with supplemental materials for every major ESL topic.

Materials for pronunciation, pair activities, and pair and trio activities that can be used as homework.

If you have these books, you will never scramble for materials at the last minute again.

Your classes will never be too long again. They'll always be too short.
