English Speaking Training –Strategies for Satisfying Conversations

English Speaking Training-Strategies for Satisfying Conversations


To make a satisfying conversation, first consider the strategy of asking questions throughout the conversation.  That makes dialogue and both people are learning about each other. 

Satisfying conversations are like tennis games or badminton games. The conversation goes back and forth like the tennis ball or birdie. You talk for a minute or two, then you ask the other person a question.

What to do if you can’t think of a question after you have shared something?  Try this: “What do you think about that?”

Now the respondent can go in any direction in response — refer back to something you said earlier, express an opinion, or even change the topic by saying “That reminds me of something that happened to me last week.”

Open-ended questions invite the other person to open up.  Also, use them when in negotiating or planning.

“What do you think about that?” is fantastic in everyday conversation.  You can get farther in understanding other people by learning about their experience and opinions.  That makes for building relationship and ultimately trust.
