How to Improve Your Conversation Skills 如何增加會話技巧

這是我明天要上課的一對一的部份上課內容,從一本叫Touchstone的書上摘要下來的,有一篇閱讀叫如何增加你的會話技巧,單字不太難,有空的時候可以參考一下。這可不只有跟外國人講話而已,台灣人也是一樣。有些人說起話來滔滔不絕但是講的都是自己,一點也不有趣。

上課因為課本的關係,所以很多想上的東西也不一定能上到,我還挺喜歡touchstone這本書,裡面很多很好用的東西,有機會我在慢慢放上來,有興趣的人也可以去誠品翻翻看,它是Cambridge出的。同學可以自己練習一下。這些問題都還挺實用的。

餓死了。今天又睡到中午,一起來就瘋狂備課,因為很多東西啊,今天晚上的課,明天早上的課,明天晚上的課。還要上去facebook上瞎掰一下。起來到現在只填了兩塊鄰居送來的起士蛋糕,然後現在又要趕上課去了,然後我的房間像颱風過境一樣。桌上堆了十來本的書,數十個講義,檔案夾堆滿地。暈倒。不出門要來不及囉,還要找時間找東西填肚子,六點半的課,現在五點二十,我還在這兒寫,啊!!!!尖叫中,快閃人。

How to improve your conversation skills

Do you like to meet new people? Do you like to talk, or are you shy? Whatever your answers, this guide can help you improve your conversation skills.

1.  Have some topics ready to start a conversation.

Say something about the weather or the place you’re in. Talk about the weekend-we all have something to say about weekends!

2.  Make the conversation interesting.

Know about events in the news. Read restaurant and movie reviews. Find out about current music scene or what’s new in fashion sports.

3.  Be a good listener.

Keep eye contact and say, “Yes,” “Hmm,” “Uh-huh,” “Right,” and “I know.” And say, “Really? That’s interesting.” It encourages people to talk.

4.  Don’t be boring.

Don’t just say, “Yes” or “No” when you answer a question. Give some interesting information, too.

5.  Don’t talk all the time.

Ask, “How about you?” and show you are interested in the other person, too. People love to talk about themselves.

6.  Ask information questions.

“What do you do in your free time?” or “What kind of food do you like?” Use follow-up questions to keep the conversation going. But don’t ask too many questions-it’s not an interrogation!

7.  Be positive.

Negative comments can sound rude. And if you don’t want to answer a personal question, simply say, “Oh, I’m not sure I can answer that,” or “I’d rather not say.”

8.  Smile!

Everyone loves a smile. Just be relaxed, smile, and be yourself.
