Welcome to The Conversation Game. From henceforth, you will no longer treat language as an academic subject to be studied. Instead, you will treat it as a live action multi-player game to be mastered through serious play and practice. At the beginning of each lesson, you will learn a new mental model for understanding the conversation game. Then at the end of each lesson, you will find instructions for games to be played with a native speaker practice partner. If you apply the models, play the games, and spend enough time in the arena, you will eventually reach fluency.
