    Ask Good Questions

    One of the most importanttools for engaging

    another person in a conversation is your

    curiosity.Your curiosity best manifests itself inthe way you ask questions.

    First of all, you want to ask big, open-ended

    questions that require more than a yes orno answer and create for the other person

    the context to really talk about themselves.

    In everyday life, one of the most common

    conversation starters is to talk about the

    situation you are in. If you are in arestaurant, talk about what you see around

    you. Give your opinion about something you

    see. If the person you are with shows someinterest, you can continue to talk about

    every aspect of that restaurant.

    If you struggle with starting conversations with

    some people or in some contexts, its OK to use

    conversation starters you have learned andpracticed before.

    Remember that good conversation starters reflect

    your authentic curiosity.

    phrase, it would be this: have a combination offriendliness, curiosity, authenticity and verve.

    This mix is an almost magical key which opens

    many doors in social interactions.

    However, if the person does not seem so

    interested, you could compare that restaurant to abetter one that you have been to. Besides the

    location you are in, you could also talk about the

    weather, about people who are passing by, or about

    what you and the other person are wearing, etc.

    Very important if you can show that you are

    confident about what you are talking about and the

    other person can give the positive respon. Theconversation will keep going if you always confident

    and talking about the things that can make them

    You do not have to be sospecific to start a conversation. Youcould make a more generalcomment. For example, you could

    comment about what ishappening in the world, or at yourjob, or in your city. This is a goodway to find out what the otherperson is interested in. Watch how

    they respond to your comment anduse that as a sign showing whetheryou should continue talking or not.

    Don't worry if the other

    person does not show enthusiasm.That often happens. However, ifyou keep on trying, you will findsomething that is of more interestto him or her.

    A great way to start the

    conversation is by complimenting

    someone to. When we dont

    know how to start a conversation

    then to break the ice, a

    compliment is always nice.A simple way that often helps

    strike up a conversation is to

    compliment the person, and then

    ask a question, for example :"I love your bag, where did you

    get it?"

    2. Think of a compliment

    3. Ask the other person question

    about themselves

    Theres no better way to start a conversation

    than ask someone a question about themselves.

    We often find that lots of people hesitate to talkabout themselves, especially at the beginning of

    a conversation. They may believe its impolite or

    they may not be comfortable with opening up, so

    they choose to bombard the other person with

    questions as an alternative.

    Nobody wants to feel like theyre in aninterrogatory when theyre having a

    conversation: What do you do? Where do youlive? Where do you work? Where are you from?What hobbies do you have? That is too manyquestions for two minutes of conversation.

    But we can ask the other person about the thingsthat they like, for examples Ask them what genreof music that they like. Some examples are HipHop, R&B, Pop, Reggae, Country, Jazz, Classical,

    Rock, and Alternative. Once they tell you, try tothink of a song from that genre that you know,and could use to get the conversation started.

    Sometimes simple things like these are really goodconversation starters especially if the person

    happens to like the same kind of music that youdo. You can discuss different bands, or singers.Discuss maybe what concerts you have been to, orwould like to go see. Ask them what kind ofconcert they would go to if they had the chance to.

    Then you can also ask them what their favorite

    food is. For example you might want to ask them ifthey like Mexican food. Once they reply to you, yourespond with your kind of favorite food, and thenyou proceed to ask them which restaurant they likethe most.

    Here are some tips if you dont know how to start aconversation when you have nothing to talk about :

    1. Introduce yourself if necessary. If you dontknow

    the person, breaking the ice is very simple: tell the

    new person your name, offer your hand to shake

    and smile. You can introduce yourself with "Hello,

    my name is..." or you can say "Hi, I'm...

    2. Ask an open-ended question

    then you can continue it with thesimple question like "Where doyou come from?" or commentabout the weather if you are onthe outside room, like "It's really

    cold today isn'tit?

    The weather is the simple topic

    which can be easy topic for

    talking to someone. An openquestion requires an explanationfor an answer rather than just asimple yes or no.

    Examples :

    Open questions tend to beginwith who, when, what, why,

    where, and how. whereas closed questions tend

    to start with do, have, andis/am/are.

    Closed questions: "Do you like books?

    "Have you been to university? "Is spring your favorite season?

    and "Do you come here often?"

  • 7/30/2019 Ppt English Conversation


    Open questions:"What kind of books do you like?

    "What did you study at university?"Which is your favorite season? Why?

    "What are you doing right now?

    and "Where's your usual favourite place to go whenholiday?"
