Module Steps:   Overview  |  Practice  |  Review

There are two types of conversations: casual and serious


En español | Level 1 conversations are casual with no action required


  • The goal of these conversations is to make talking about cars and driving part of a routine.
  • Anyone in the family can initiate these general, casual conversations.
  • Topics of conversation can be the weather, road conditions, general auto maintenance—anything that helps to set the stage for future conversations.


Level 1 conversations become a foundation for more serious conversations if they are needed.
