Welcome amigos y amigas, welcome to today’s episode of the English Made Simple show, this is episode number 2-1-9, and with today’s episode we are kicking off our theme for the month… which is Conversations in English.

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Milena and I am the host of the English Made Simple show, and my home address is… englishmadesimple.net. You can come over for a cup of coffee, right here at englishmadesimple.net.

Let us proceed with today’s show.

As promised, today is going to be about this word: CONVERSATIONS. More specifically Conversations in English.

By the way, did you know the slang word for conversation is Convo? So if you ever get stuck pronouncing the word conversation, simply say Convo for short.

So let me ask you a question… what is your conversational style? It’s kind of similar to Communication Style if you will, but for the sake of today’s episode I’d like to talk about your Conversational Style?

Are you touchy-feely? Or are you the silent type who nods, smiles and listens?

Are you direct?

Or Indirect? And what is the difference between these two?

Or do you like to use proverbs and metaphors to communicate with others?

Each of these… I guess … personalities or characteristics describes your conversational style.

You may have acquired your particular style while growing up, you’ve been taught this particular style by your family or maybe it’s something that’s culturally acceptable in your country.

I will give you a couple of examples to describe each style or to explain what they mean, and how they are ALL different.

If we don’t accept other people’s communication style, we might end up in a conflict-type of situation. This rarely happens, I am just saying how we just need to be aware and always be humble.

We may be oblivious to other people’s cultures and their communication style because we’ve never experienced them before. And then when we are suddenly introduced to them we may find ourselves to either be offended or embarrassed by our actions. Or we may think something is wrong with us…

So let me first start by this style… I call it “touchy-feely”
