Introduction We are teaching our kids boring things every day. Teachers always ask students the same questions such as “What's your name?” or “What are you doing?,” just as they did decades ago. But kids are smarter than we think. They read more books and have more opportunities to travel abroad and meet English- speaking people, and they are able to think about things that happen around the world. Teachers should be ready to give our children many speaking opportunities in the classroom, and talk about more interesting, meaningful topics. This would lead to giving our kids more effective communication skills, including how to listen, how to think, and how to respond. To achieve these objectives, some teachers may need more aggressive preparation, but they can get much help from this series of English conversation books. In your next English class, why don’t you ask, “What do you think?” instead of just “What’s your name?”
