LOS ANGELES - Jan. 19, 2018 - PRLog -- Chimayo Press is proud to release Compelling Conversations – Vietnam: Supplementary Bilingual English-Vietnamese Conversation Questions for Vietnamese Learners of English. A bilingual companion to last year's second edition of Compelling Conversations – Vietnam, this ebook supplement provides  easier access to conversational English for Vietnamese learners. Intended for American immigrants and intermediate Vietnamese English as a second language (ESL) students, these 420 conversation questions help learners share personal experiences and express opinions – in English and Vietnamese.

Inspired by her Vietnamese-American relatives –  who are still most comfortable speaking in their native tongue – co-author Teresa Nguyen created this bilingual supplement. "Adding these bilingual questions helps Vietnamese English learners of English to feel comfortable."  English fluency remains the focus of  this supplemental collection of bilingual questions. The first set of 15 questions (Sharing Experiences) introduces the topic, asking short, clear questions. A second set (The Conversation Continues) then follows up with additional, in-depth conversation topics. All questions are open-ended to encourage reflection and in-class discussion.

Native English speakers learning Vietnamese may also find this supplemental material useful; with the increased tourism and trade in Vietnam, travelers, entrepreneurs, and professionals alike can ask questions and create closer relationships in both languages. Simply asking "how do you say" goes a long way!

Critics and English teaching professionals have also weighed in.  Annie Tran, English faculty at the University of California, Irvine calls Compelling Conversations – Vietnam "a must-read for all English language instructors working with Vietnamese learners of English." She adds: "With the plethora of conversational and real-world topics that direct English language learners toward language accuracy, fluency, and proficiency, the authors help students grasp both English language idiosyncrasies as well as acculturate them to the American culture.

"Compelling Conversations. . . . gives a personally relevant, tailored experience for advanced Vietnamese ELLs to formulate their opinions," noted Sarah Elizabeth Snyder of Teaching English as a Second Language – Electronic Journal  about the first edition. "I can see and recommend this book as a backbone for a lively conversation class."

Chimayo Press (http://www.chimayopress.com), a Los Angeles-based publisher of niche books that create compelling conversations, deepen relationships, and celebrate the human spirit, continues to expand with this latest release. The original Compelling Conversations ESL book has found audiences across the world in over 50 countries and established a reputation with English teachers, online tutors, and conversational clubs alike. The first bilingual entry in the series, Compelling Conversations – Vietnam: Supplementary Bilingual English-Vietnamese Conversation Questions for Vietnamese Learners of English is available as an ebook through Amazon Kindle.

We are currently looking for a dedicated, market-savvy co-publisher in Vietnam to expand our reach and help create even more compelling conversations. Please refer all interest/inquiries to Eric Roth at eric@compellingconversations.com or 1-855-ESL-Book (310-390-0131 outside the U.S. and Canada).
