English conversations-Answering the telephone

English conversations

Answering the telephone

Improve English Conversations through everyday conversation

I have written a detailed book English conversations for all occasions, to learn English as Foreign Language.

This tutorial English conversation-Answering the telephone has been prepared from my well known book English conversations for all occasions, which I wrote for Indian students to improve everyday conversation..

English Conversations for All Occasions is a unique book of its kind, specially written to help Indian student. A quick look at the titles of the lessons would convince the reader that the book has been prepared by visualizing all types of situational conversations which may confront any man or woman in his daily activities. Whether one converses with his family members or moves about to mix in society, he will not feel tongue-tied for want of appropriate words or expressions. In a post office or barber’s shop, at a hotel or taxi stand, every person who has read this book, will be able to speak in English fluently and with confidence.

Good knowledge and satisfactory conversation drill is important in English Conversation. This Tutorial would not only prove an asset to the reader in his daily life, but also on special occasions like interviews for jobs, etc. He would be able to face the interviewers with equanimity and confidence.

All the lessons have been designed in a programmed fashion. Word-meanings, Phrases and exercises have been added at the end of every lesson to help the students master the topics.

All the lesson should be read along, not once but many times, so that the conversation comes easy to the reader when he faces real life situations. The author would feel rewarded for his labours if the book helps men and women become social relations

This Tutorial should help all those readers who find difficulty in speaking fluent English. This will be completed in 45 lessons
