"Express Yourself!" is a conversation book for adult or academic ESOL students. It uses competency-based, communicative exercises to focus on the language of natural human reactions to situations that occur in daily life. It is divided into 10 chapters based on ways of feeling, thinking, or acting. Each chapter includes a picture story with exercises, and a section on body. The additional highlights of "Express Yourself!": features universal chapter themes, such as happiness, humor, courage, hatred, love, and doubt; and practical conversations are included to serve as models for students. These are followed by highly communicative activities that allow students the opportunity to improve their communication skills. The expressive vocabulary used in "Express Yourself!" is geared towards improving the communication skills of students, enabling them to articulate the full range of their experience. For example, rather than learning how to use the bus system and speak to the bus driver, students learn to describe their feelings when they miss the bus.
