This week, Your Weekly English Workout turns to simple questions to enhance your conversational skills in English.
A fluent speaker will use his language skills to fuel a conversation and thus, have a more interesting dialogue. In this new video (https://clockworkenglish.pivotshare.com/media/your-weekly-english-workout-conversation-questions/42466), we explore these simple questions that will enable you to fuel your conversations.
What does “fuel a conversation” mean? Well, a bit like a fire needs wood to keep on burning, a conversation needs reactions and expressing interest to be engaging for both involved.
In English, we often use expressions like “Really?” or “Seriously?” to keep the conversation flowing. These two statements are used to show interest and to encourage the speaker to continue their story. We also often use short conversation questions like “How come?”, “In what way?” or “Who with?”, “Where to?” to ask the speaker for more information without interrupting them too much.
Learning these simple and short questions will enhance your speech tremendously and will make you a more fluent speaker very easily.
