Escrito por aureliano el .

3 Keys to Continuing a Conversation in English

  1. Ask questions that start with Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How. Try to avoid yes/no questions.
  2. In each of your answers, give one or two details that will help continue the conversation. You don’t need to talk for a long time.
  3. Talk about these topics:
    • Family
    • Interests/Hobbies
    • Sports
    • TV, movies, and popular culture
    • Music
    • Current events
    • Interesting places in the city
    • Travel

Unless the other person is a very good friend of yours, avoid topics like politics, religion, sex life, health problems, and personal finances.

CONVERSATION 1

 

“Hey, how was your weekend?”

“Pretty good! I went to a baseball game with my brother.”

“Really? Who was playing?”

“The Yankees and the Red Sox. We’re huge Yankees fans!”

“Yeah? How was the game?”

“Very exciting – it was tied until the last inning, when we won 2-1.”

“Haha, that’s great! I can’t say I’m a baseball fan, myself – I prefer basketball.”

“Basketball, huh? Playing or watching?”

“Both – I’ve played basketball since I was a kid.”

“No kidding! You must be really good.”

“Well, I just play for fun. It’s a great workout.”

“I bet. I could use more exercise myself, but I don’t think I’m cut out for basketball. I was thinking of joining a martial arts class…”

“That sounds interesting! Which one?”

CONVERSATION 2

“What a beautiful day! It feels like summer!”

“Sure does! I can’t wait for the summer – we’re taking a big family vacation in June.”

“Oh? Where are you going?”

“We’re going to Colorado for a month of hiking and camping. Have you ever been there?”

“Yes, I’ve actually been to Denver twice on business trips… but they didn’t involve any hiking!”

“Haha. How about you – any special plans for the summer?”

“No, not really. I’ll probably take a few weekend trips to visit friends, but I’m saving up my vacation time for December, when I’m going to Costa Rica.”

“Wow! Why Costa Rica?”

“Well, my best friend from college lives there now – she owns a hotel, and she invited me to spend a couple of weeks there to escape the cold winter weather.”

“How wonderful! Do you speak any Spanish?”

“Barely any – only what I remember from classes in high school…”
