How to Control a Conversation in English, Conversation Control

The key to control of the conversation with questions in. Good students like to ask the right questions at the right time. After reading this article, you will be able to start conversations easily and seamlessly continue the conversation, even when they do not understand everything.


The best way to start a conversation using "yes / no". The aim is to find topics of common interest so that your conversation is enjoyable for both partners. Imagine a topic that interests you and that you think may be of interest to your partner. Use "yes / no" questions to find out if your friends are interested in same. For example, if you want a certain type of music you can ask questions such as:

You like blues? 

Have you ever listened to BB King? 

Do you know where I can listen to music? 

Are you interested in jazz? 

Any questions, starting with "C", "I" Is, "" East "," Impossible, "" will "or" No "may be a good start for converstaion. However, these issues are only the beginning. You should listen to suit your partner, then "followed" with a specific question, usually using the "what" when "" where "," who "and" why ". So if your partner you says he or she loves the blues, you can ask "whose music you like?". If your partner is not as blue, then you may want something like, "What music do you do?". should always be "monitored" question ready. If not, the conversation can happen to a rapid end.

Now the conversation moves forward, you may have some communication problems. What should you do? Again, ask the right question is very important. Here are some key issues that need to use every time you have trouble:

Could you repeat that please? 

More informally, you may ask: "What do you say?". Often the friends we can only say: "What?". Even if you use informal language, you can do this by starting with a polite "Excuse me" or "Excuse."

Can you speak more slowly, please? 

This is obviously a good question, but not used too often. If you're really struggling to understand someone, you might think to buy cassettes and good work to improve listening comprehension. DVD-s and VCDs and best practices for advanced students.

How to write bla bla bla? 

Maybe you know the word, but I saw him writing. If you hear a spell to find out.

What is blah blah blah mean?

If you can not get the exact word you can say "that" instead of the word. (Do not say "blah blah blah!" This is just "filler"

Do you say bla bla bla? 

If you think you understand, but do not know, you can repeat the idea for your partner in different words. You will then reply if you were right or not. If, instead, just say "I do not think I understand," then the conversation stops.
