The Fall 2016 Chimayo Catalog is here!

Readers and teachers of English: Are you looking to create a more fluency-focused curriculum for your ESL/EFL class this fall? Do you seek new, engaging communicative activities to encourage class discussions? Or perhaps flexible lesson plans with a built-in homework assignment per unit?

If so, it may interest you to note that this year we’ve updated our catalog with two new Compelling Conversations titles: a second edition of Compelling Conversations – Vietnam, and Compelling Conversations for Fundraisers. You can also find two exceptional books by USC Assistant Professor J.J. Polk, my friend and colleague at the American Language Institute: English in Global Contexts: Proficiency Tasks for Aspiring Learners and English Questions: Practice Drills in All Active Tenses.


For the latest on both our new and old titles, you can download Chimayo Press’s Fall 2016 catalog, for free, here. I am also pleased to announce that the full catalog, along with five featured books, will be at the Frankfurt Book Fair in October. I am honored to have this opportunity, and look forward to gaining new readers and starting more compelling conversations!

About the Author

Eric H. Roth teaches international graduate students the pleasures and perils of academic writing and public speaking in English at the University of Southern California (USC). He also consults English language schools on communicative methods to effectively teach English. Roth co-authored Compelling Conversations: Questions and Quotations on Timeless Topics in 2006 to help English language learners increase their English fluency. Recommended by English Teaching Professional magazine, the advanced ESL textbook has been used in over 50 countries in English classrooms and conversation clubs. Easy English Times, an adult literacy newspaper, has published a monthly column, “Instant Conversation Activities,” based on the book since 2008. The first specific version for a particular country, Vietnam, was published in 2011. Compelling American Conversations came out in 2012, and Compelling Conversations – Japan arrived in 2015. Eric enjoys sharing reflections, resources, and teaching tips on this #ESL #EFL #ELT blog.
