Everyday conversations

Practice everyday conversations with these short lessons from ShareAmerica, a site managed by the Bureau of International Information Programs within the U.S. Department of State.

Everyday conversations offers sixty lessons plus through around everyday situations (making suggestions, greetings, invitations, advice, expressing opinions) and topics (the environment, recycling, hobbies).

The lessons all follow the same format: Learners listen to a short dialogue (from one to three minutes) the transcript of which is available. Some of the vocabulary items and phrases in the dialogue are highlighted because an explanation of their meaning and use is given.

Everyday conversations is a wonderful site for students at elementary and early intermediate level, although stronger students will also benefit from some of the vocabulary and idiomatic expressions that come up in the conversations.
