"I am looking for American Conversational English."
Based on the Speech Plasma Method, this volume is designed for students who can speak English at elementary level but lack fluency, which makes them feel confused and frustrated. The book is aimed at the development of the learner's fluency in speech through fluency practice drills. The drills are similar to physical exercises that can be practiced regularly, repeated over and over again, concentrating either on their intensity and force or on rapidness and speed.
