  • Hey, there, what's up? How's it going?


  • I have a quick English tip for you that will help you to make your telephone conversations or Skype conversations, whatever you use, to call people up these days.

    我有個英文小撇步能幫助你更順利的使用電話、Skype 或其他工具聯絡。

  • It will make them even better.


  • One big mistake to avoid. So, if you wanna know, keep watching.


  • Now, I had an experience where I was talking on Skype with a friend of mine.

    有次我跟一個朋友用 Skype 聊天。

  • Actually, now she's a friend, but I guess you could say when I called her, it was the first time that we spoke, so I didn't really know her at all.


  • And, when we were talking on Skype, I experienced this weird feeling because every time that I said something, she was kind of silent.

    當時用 Skype 聊天時,感覺怪怪的,因為每次我說話時,她都不太回應。

  • Like, actually, she was silent; she didn't say anything.


  • So I had to, again, maybe say something more or ask a question to see if she would respond.


  • But her silence made me realize that in American English telephone conversations,


  • we're always making some noise or small comments


  • to show that we're listening, that we're interested, and that we're really engaged in the conversation.


  • So, without even using any new words, it's important to use these phrases like, "uh-huh", "yes", "I see", "Ok".


  • These kind of phrases make a huge difference, and they'll make your partner or the person you're speaking with feel like you're really interested and part of the conversation.


  • Now, I am not sure about this silence in other cultures or other languages, but I think in American English, we don't like silence.


  • So, try to be aware and to observe how your conversation partners are feeling that silence or if they're not feeling that silence.


  • It's all about observing and learning from your surroundings, and that's the natural way.


  • So, if you'd like to learn more about how to learn English that "go natural English way,"


  • come back to where you can find out about the premium course, and I'd like to give you a free eBook just for visiting.


  • Thanks so much for watching, and I hope to see you soon. Bye for now!
