Know any good tips for mastering conversations? Well, there are some words and phrases that tend to be used more often than others in everyday conversation. So if you know the most common questions, answers, and phrases you’ll be able to handle a lot!
When you think about it, a lot of conversations are quite predictable; they're about topics we're already familiar with. So, if we approach our studies to these conversations like we're working on remembering parts of a script, we can study efficiently.
In this video, we'll cover one hack for improving your speaking skills.
First, understand what you say when you meet a new person, what do you say to them? Things like,“What’s your name?” and “Where are you from”. Then you talk a little about yourself. And even if you know that person, there are common lines you use all the time, right?
These lines you use all the time in your conversations are your "scripts" -- these are your most commonly used questions, answers, and phrases. Targeting these expressions in your studies will help you be able to handle a lot of everyday conversations. So take some time to examine what you talk about most, or what you're interested in talking about.
Next, where to find scripts for speaking.
Luckily we have hundreds of scripts that you can use.
With our language learning program you get the line-by-line scripts for all of our lessons. In fact, lessons like the Top 25 Questions You Must Know, the 3 Minute Lessons and Survival Phrases are specifically designed to help you master the most commonly used questions, answers and phrases. For example, the “Top 25 Questions You Must Know” focuses on the 25 most common questions you’ll hear in a conversation. This includes basic questions like ”Where are you from?” “What’s your name?”, and “How old are you?” As a learner of another language, these are the questions you’ll hear almost every time you meet someone new and you’ll use them every day. It goes like this: you hear the question,Then we break down its meaning and teach you how to respond. That way, you’ll be ready to speak right after the lesson.
