Beyond Talk – Teacher’s Book:

Beyond Talk – Student’s Book:



Beyond Talk is a multimedia course aiming to develop second language (L2) interactional competence for intermediate and upper intermediate adult learners of English. It has become even more relevant today than when it was first published in 1997 as there is now wider acceptance of the importance of  teaching interactional competence and the use of Conversation Analysis (CA) in teaching and learning an additional language  (see Huth & Taleghani-Nikazm, 2006; Kasper, 2006; He, 2004).

When Beyond Talk was first published in 1997 it was at the cutting edge and still is many years on as there is nothing comparable on the market today (view the page on “Comments” from renowned academics, practitioners and others).  Over the years since its publication, through advertising it on a couple of academic lists and being cited in research articles and projects I have had  so many requests for it  from all over the world that I have decided to make it readily available because it has been out of print shortly after its publication. Beyond Talk has been endorsed and recommended to be re-published by the eminent Professor E. A. Schegloff (UCLA), co-founder of Conversation Analysis (see the page on Comments).

Today there is a plethora of articles screaming for the teaching of L2  interactional competence, but in practice how does one go about it without in-depth training in CA? From theory to practice this what Beyond Talk achieves. Indeed, Beyond Talk unveils for teachers what this interactional competence is all about in a practical way through activities, where the key concepts are explained in plain English. It is based on filmed spoken interactions that include unscripted conversations as well as naturally occurring conversations so it reflects the real world and uses authentic language and activities, which are based on the analysis of these interactions.

Key concepts are revised and expanded throughout the course so students can gain a better understanding. Technical terms and transcription conventions have been simplified when possible to make those accessible to a lay audience.  This course book reveals how conversation works, its structure and orderliness, and how people use language and politeness to interact. It helps students to explore the reasons for cross-cultural variations as students are required to examine their first language to compare it and contrast it with English and other students’ languages so it helps develop intercultural competence.  Further it provides many opportunities for students to use language with a variety of interlocutors, in various situations and for different purposes.

Beyond Talk is student-centred as many activities are designed to be used in pairs, and small groups and to employ language in a meaningful way so they can communicate confidently with speakers outside the class  (see students’ comments on the page My profile and Student’s Comments). In Beyond Talk some grammatical features are explained in context when relevant to interactional competence as the course book mainly focuses on spoken grammar and interactional competence with an intercultural communication perspective. Through this methodology the students can explore their identity (or identities) and make a conscious choice of adopting or not the sociocultural norms explored. The aim is essentially to expose them to these norms so they can  reflect on them to gain a deeper understanding and fathom issues of interculturality with an open mind. English has become a global language so interacting in English will more often than not involve people from a variety of linguistic backgrounds, thus it is important to be able to negotiate meaning within a cross-cultural framework.

Teachers can select what activities they want to use to suit their particular classroom context. This methodology is about providing a new way of looking at language from both an interactional and intercultural perspectives.



In presenting real life language through the use of filmed interactions, students will be able to:

  1. Understand the mechanisms of spoken interactions in different contexts and with various interactants
  2. Be aware of the cultural aspect of their first language (L1) and English (L2) and the different politeness systems as well as similarities
  3. Be able to reproduce a more native like spoken English and engage in meaningful social interactions outside class
  4. Be able to interact successfully in English with both native and non native speakers thus developing intercultural competence
  5. Become more aware of the importance of body language in interaction (use of gaze, head movements, facial expressions, gestures, postures)
  6. Understand the pragmatic meaning of prosodic features such as intonation and be able to reproduce them in conversation
  7. Be exposed to various Englishes: Australian, British and American
  8. Uncover the implicit meaning of utterances


It comprises

  • A Resource book for teachers (teacher’s book)
  • A workbook for students (student’s book)
  • A DVD which includes a model lesson and 9 conversations
  • A CD with listening activities (intonation, sentence stress, etc.)


It provides:

  • Answers to all the exercises (you don’t have to be a conversation analyst to teach this course!)
  • Additional activities
  • Transcript of all the conversations with the prosodic and paralinguilistic features indicated when relevant
  • Explanation of the transcription conventions
  • Index to the topics found in the filmed interactions and the student practice sections
  • Glossary of all the technical terms
  • Further readings
  • Bibliography


It provides:

  1. A wide variety of activities  (role-play, simulation, telling anecdotes about their language experiences, commenting, listening, etc.) to explore a range of topics and to give students ample opportunities to practise their spoken English. Care has been given to ensure that there is minimal writing involved (e.g. ticking boxes)
  2. Transcript of all the conversations with the prosodic and paralinguistic features indicated when relevant
  3. A student evaluation to assess students’ progress and understanding at the end of the course
  4. A stimulating context for exploring language in use by using multimedia and lively interactions with various interactants
  5. An explanation of the idioms used in any particular conversation and a cultural note when relevant

The student workbook deals with a wide range of topics designed to assist students to become effective conversationalists and communicators in their second/foreign language.

Major Teaching Topics Include:

  • Differentiating between institutional talk and casual conversation
  • Using your voice: recognition/reproduction of intonation contours and sentence stress
  • Keeping a conversation going by using response questions, tag questions, and tag response questions
  • Predicting what comes next in the turn. This requires an understanding of grammar, intonation and pragmatics
  • Making small talk which has a crucial social role in spoken interactions
  • Listener’s role and giving feedback
  • Politeness and registers
  • Starting and closing a conversation depending on the contexts and interactants
  • Body language
  • Clarifying misunderstandings or mishearing (repairs)
  • Socially appropriate topics to avoid students making an embarrassing faux pas
  • Changing and closing a topic
  • Negotiating to come to an agreement
  • The uses and meanings of silence in conversation
  • Predicting an upcoming interactional problem



  • Conversation 1: At the bar
  • Conversation 2: At the bar – talking with a regular customer
  • Conversation 3: At the doctor’s – talking about a real road accident (expressing sympathy, humour, small talk)
  • Conversation 4: Paying a compliment, complaining, introducing someone
  • Conversation 5: At a teaching institution – making a request, humour, granting the request
  • Conversation 6: At a teaching institution – making a request, refusing it and negotiating
  • Conversation 7:  At a teaching institution: Small talk about the weather – making a request, delaying granting the request through questioning, clarification
  • Conversation 8: Invitation (humour), negotiating time and arrangements, leave-taking
  • Conversation 9 (parts 1 & 2): Part 1 is a repeat of conversation 7, and part 2 is a continuation of conversation 7: talking about the week-end, disclosing problems, pregnancy, exchanging news, taking leave

You can use these conversations to teach a range of speech acts and sociocultural norms of interactions.

NB There is an error regarding the subtitle in the cover page where the words “of English” after learners have been omitted, thus it should read: Beyond Talk: A course in communication and conversation for intermediate adult learners of English.

You’ll find that an error occurred during the scanning of the teacher’s book and p. 78 did not come out properly so a new copy of the entire analysis of conversation 7 has been reproduced at the end of the book. Also some pages appear as missing when they are not, in fact these were blank pages at the end of a unit and they have been excluded.

    • Hi John,
      If you could tell me how I could enable those features I’ll be happy to give it a go? Sure it would be a lot simpler for me. As it turns out I actually pay out of pocket for postage. Anne-Marie

      • Hello,

        I’ve just read this message and it is a great idea to put this CD/DVD online. You can do so on web pages like this:

        Just become a member (for free) and you can upload up to 200Gb of files there. Then you can share a link with us, so everyone can download the files.

        Kind regards,


      • Thanks Tea, I’m working on this now so it’s going to happen soon. Anne-Marie

      • Thanks for the tip, will look at it. Hopefully by the end of next week I should have the audio and movie files online. Anne-Marie

  9. Dear Author,
    I would also like to get audio and video files to accompany a book, and as far as I understand, it is simpler (and cheaper) for you to share them via the Internet. Would you please reply me to my email address and perhaps we can somehow find a way how to share the files in that way.

    Best regards,

    teacher of English from Estonia

  10. I would like to receive the audio and video files as well. Your book sounds really interesting and practical. I hope it is going to be fruitful and effective in my teaching experience.

  13. Dear A.M. Barraja-Rohan,

    “Beyond Talking” really addresses all the critical needs for my adult TESOL classes in Taiwan. I am excited about using the materials to help my students with their L2 interactional and intercultural competence so they can become effective communicators with English outside of the classroom.

    I would really appreciate getting access to the CD and DVD for “Beyond Talking.”

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful teaching/learning resource!

    Best Regards,

  19. Dear Anne – Marie,
    wow, what an amazing book! I was hoping I’d find something like that. Thanks for sharing. I’ve been struggling with spoken English for quite a while and and this material looks like so smart and coherent, knowing exactly where it wants students to get to. I would be also interested in both CD and DVD for Beyond Talking. If it’s not too much trouble for you could you share a link with me where I could download it?
    Kind regards.

  20. Hi
    I tried to email you but am not sure it worked. I work with ESL children and would love a copy of book, cd, and dvd for Beyond Conversation.

    shelley terpstra
    • Hi shelley,
      The book is available on the page “Information on Beyond Talk” as a downloadable pdf file. However the material has been designed for adult students and I wouldn’t recommend it for children. Please have a look at the book first and if your children are older teenagers then contact me through email or on this blog. Anne-Marie

  21. Hello Anne-Marie,

    I just took a look at the pdf file of the book and it looks wonderful. Could you please send me the link for the file sharing site where I can find the audio and video? Thanks!

    Kinds Regards,


  22. Hi Anne-Marie,

    Thank you for sharing the great books. I would also be interested in the CD and DVD. I wonder if you could also share with me the link to download both the CD and DVD?

    Best Regards,

    Many thanks!

  25. Hi Anne – Marie,

    I’m supposed to be teaching a conversation class this June, and was just wishing for materials to use which have a pragmatic focus. What a great surprise to find your book and materials! I’d love to have the cd and dvd and whatever else I need to implement your curriculum in my class.
    Thanks so much,
    Dina Wilson

  26. Dear Anne-Marie,

    I’m so glad that I have found this website. I teach adults and your work would be very useful. Could you send me the link to the audio and video files?

    Many thanks for your great work and I wish you all the best!

    Annamaria Fekete
  27. Hi Anne-Marie,

    I’m teaching in Baku, Azerbaijan and would love to use your materials in my high-intermediate conversation class. I have lots of appreciation for your curriculum development efforts. I’ve downloaded all of the texts and audio files but need the link to the video file. Please send the link to me at.

    Thank You!

    • Thanks Pat for your lovely and encouraging comment. I do hope that one day I’ll be able to develop materials for more advanced students.

  28. Hi Anne-Marie,

    Thank you for sharing your work. I believe this will be helpful in my teaching. I’ve downloaded the pdf files you have provided. Please send me the link for the video file. Thanks.


    • Thanks Audrey for your interest, you’ll find that I’ve responded to your request via email.
      Enjoy your teaching!

  29. Dear Anne-Marie,

    Thank you so much for providing the free download links above….Both the ‘Student’s Book’ and ‘Teacher’s Book’ look extremely interesting and useful.

    Unfortunately, I am having difficulty downloading the audio files using the the links provided above. When I click on these links, I am directed to the ‘dropbox’ website and given an ‘Error 404’ message. It appears as if the files are no longer available via this website.

    Could you please advise me of an alternative method for downloading these audio files?

    Kind regards,

  30. Dear Anne Marie
    I have already downloaded the teacher’s and student’s book and it is just what I need for a couple of adults I am about to start teaching. how could I get the audio and video files?
    thank you in advance

  31. Hi Anne-Marie!

    I am a student teacher in Sweden and I´m going to be a teacher in Swedish as a second language. I will write my forthcoming essay about authentic and constructed dialogues (both oral and written) in teaching materials. Hence, I would be really glad if you could send me an e-mail with the CD- and DVD-files. The reason I would like to get access to your material is that it seems very well thought through, interesting and controversial and also that I haven´t found any other teaching material that contain transcripts of natural occurring conversations as well as audio- and videotapes of the same conversations.

    Best regards


  32. Dear Anne Marie,

    Your book seems great and highly interesting. I would love to get your CD and DVD of “Beyond talking” and to prepare for my beginning conversation classes. I’ve been struggling for some time and I think this is one of the best solutions so far. Thank you so much for sharing it to us.
    I look forward to seeing or reading your response.

    Warm regards,

  33. Dear Anne-Marie
    This is Mira Kakkar from Calcutta, India. I have been given the task of teaching spoken English by a not-for-profit organization to young adults who come from economically challenged and socially deprived backgrounds – but are ambitious to improve their lives. I am keen to help them. Your book as well as your audio and video files sound exciting and just the tools needed. Would be grateful for your help and for the links to your material.
    I am impressed by your generosity, but I understand it as well. You’ll know why once you’ve been through our website.
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    • Dear Mira,
      Thank you for your kind comments. I’d only be too happy to help. I have sent you an email with the links to the audio and video files.

  34. Dear Anne-Marie,
    I would be grateful if you sent me the DVD or The CD so that I can use them in the classroom with my students. The students’ book is not enough. I’ve tried teaching with printed material, but it has proved to be boring and not motivating. The introduction of sound and picture to the lesson always brings liveliness and fun. Thank you for sharing your material and ideas with us. Sharing is caring as you know.
    With best regards

  35. Hi would like to receive the cd or dvd, for my classes thanks a lot

  38. Hello,
    I’ve been an English teacher in Asia for almost 3 years, but I’m about to teach adult conversation classes for the first time. I found your page while trolling the internet for guidance, and your resources look great! Can you send me them to me? I notice the last comment was all the way back in September, so I’m hoping you’re still up and running!

    Thanks so much,

  39. Hi Anne- Marie,
    Thank you for sharing the information on teaching conversation analysis to ESL/EFL students. I found my students are still lacking in mastering spoken interaction skills. If you don’t mind, could I have the access to the materials please? I have sent you an e-mail requesting that.
    Thank you.
