Topics for ESL/EFL conversation classes

Despite their initial lack of self-confidence, most ESL students in conversation groups gradually develop their ability to express their thoughts and improve their spoken English.

General conversation - Intermediate Unfinished sentences 1
General conversation - Advanced Unfinished sentences 2
