  • Hi Bob the Canadian here.

  • Let's talk about noses.

  • Everyone has one.

  • Mine's a little bit bigger than most.

  • Hi Bob the Canadian here.

  • Today I wanted to talk a little bit about those little things that you can say to help you during an English conversation.

  • So let's say you're having a conversation with someone and they're talking about something that you find interesting.

  • A neat way to make the conversation flow better is to say things like: That's neat.

  • Or...

  • That's cool.

  • Or...

  • That's interesting.

  • And if you need some time to think you can even stretch it out and say things like: I find that interesting.

  • I find that pretty neat.

  • I find that fascinating.

  • Another suggestion to help conversation with English speakers go better is to simply ask them questions.

  • People love talking about themselves.

  • So if you can ask questions like: How many times did you do it?

  • How long were you gone for?

  • Or...

  • Did you enjoy yourself?

  • Or...describe that to me a bit.

  • It sounds fascinating.

  • Which leads me to the last example.

  • You can combine the two.

  • So you'll want to get comfortable saying things like: That's neat.

  • I find that fascinating.

  • How long were you gone for?

  • Or...

  • That's really interesting.

  • So you like camping?

  • Or...

  • I find that pretty neat.

  • I've always wanted to do that.

  • Was it hard to get started?
