Being originally from the Republic of Georgia I have used many ESL books to learn English and so far Compelling Conversations has been the most exciting, fun and informative. The quotes, proverbs and questions provided under each unique topic were super fun to go through and very helpful as a conversational tool. I enjoyed the topics relating to free time and would have loved to seen even more questions on art and photography. Compelling Conversations is an awesome book that makes the process of learning English natural and entertaining.
