The book is designed to teach more advanced students to speak English. The volume contains 19 conversational topics.
This volume has proved to be virtually indispensable for fluency practice at upper-intermediate level, helping foreign students of English master the language in the shortest possible time. A musician discusses the most common examination topics (19 main topics and more than 50 subtopics) used by schools and universities throughout the world. Narrating personal stories he gives opinions and explains his views on a variety of subjects. When you read about his experiences, you will be drawn into his world and feel like you made a new friend. You will get so involved into his life that you will be able to speak easily and fluently about your new friend and also about yourself for hours and hours on end. The stories are told in simple, everyday colloquial style.

Conversational topics, as nonnative English speakers our primary goal is not actually to correctly follow all the grammatical rules of English language. Instead our goal is to express our thoughts in this foreign language without being misunderstood. And as a teacher, before teaching my students the do's and dont's of English grammar, my goal is to give them first the confidence and feeling of ease with the language, therefore in my opinion learning English in converstional level is a good start. And this book is such a great help driving my class to the goal I have in mind.
One of the best book I can compare these books, for being informative, is "Learn American English". However the latter is more advanced and it requires great interest from the reader to fully understand it. While Conversational Topics and Upper-Intermediate is presented in a way that it is too practical and at the same time educational that young learners will enjoy listening.
The tone is not too formal so you won't get bored while listening.
The entire book is equally good and honestly as a teacher I appreciate how it was presented and will gladly recommend it to other educators like me.
I hope Alexander Pavlenko continue to share his knowledge about English language through his books and audiobooks. His effort is greatly appreciated especially by foreign English speakers like me who are aiming to improve fluency in the use of English language.
