Transcript SnapshotHey guys, you are listening to the English Made Simple show, this is episode 2-1-6, number two hundred and sixteen, numero doscientos diez y seis Welcome amigos y amigas…my name is Milena and I am the host of the English Made Simple show and it took me 3 weeks to get over my flu. Actually it’s not over yet, I get a tickle in my throat and start to cough. I do have an embarrassing story to share about this, and it’s kind of a recent experience, very recent… it happened yesterday in a restaurant. But more on that later. First off, today’s episode is about how to keep a conversation with someone. How do you carry on a conversation with someone even if you think you have nothing to say. How do you continue a conversation with someone? These are all great questions amigos y amigas. I get a lot of messages from listeners who say that they feel stressed when they are unable to follow conversation with someone in English… and feel awkward and confused when there is something they couldn’t understand during the conversation. I know this feeling all too well. I used to be there in your shoes… I know what happens at the moment when you are having a conversation with someone in English and you really wanted to have flowing conversation but… One of the few things happen during the conversation: – You make assumptions that the person doesn’t really understand you – A voice in your head says: that’s wrong, you should’ve said this… – Or your voice is not loud enough, you are almost whispering so the other person keeps saying, “Sorry, can you please repeat that?” Which starts to trip you because you think they couldn’t understand you because of what you said or they couldn’t understand your pronunciation. Where in fact, it’s the tone of your voice, maybe it’s too quiet for the other person to hear you. Does this all sound familiar to you?
