When we learn a language, there are four skills
that we need for complete communication. When we learn our native language, we usually learn to listen first, then to speak, then to read, finally to write. These are called ‘the four language skills’:
● Skill 1: Listening
● Skill 2: Speaking
● Skill 3: Reading
● Skill 4: Writing
Speaking is the productive skill in the oral mode. Like the other skill, it is more complicated than it seems at first and involves more than just pronouncing words.
● Partially interactive

۞Tips to Good Conversation
● Talk in the other persons’ background
Most of us are more concern about ourselves than about other people. We
like to talk about our jobs, schools, families, hobbies, like, dislikes, and
achievement. You ought to find out what other people are interested in and
give them chance to talk, not about you but about them. All people have
something interesting to say.
● Speak with our ears
A good conversationalist is a good listener. To be considered interesting, you
must be willing to do your part as a listener without having to talk too much.
● Be yourself
It is foolish to be different from what you are. Just be natural!
● Be Alert
Conversation is a give-and-take affair, like a verbal ping-pong game in which
the ball bounces from one player to another. You must do your part to keep the
ball bouncing back and forth by contributing your opinions, ideas, and
experiences, and by asking questions for information or to clarify in your mind
what others have said. To keep conversation lively, you must do your share by
being comfortably alert and attentive. There is no need to feel tense and
nervous. Be at ease-but alive.
● Be Courteous
Courtesy simply means consideration for the feeling of other people. Most of
the rules of etiquette are based on kindness and an understanding of human
۞What to Converse about
Your choice of conversational topics depends on the situation and the
interest of the participants. Much conversation is small talk.
It has to do with happening of interests to
the persons with whom
you are talking.
● “How are you doing in your job?”
● “Do you watch the latest TV-mini series?”
● “How’s your new job?”
● “What are your plans for the holiday?”
Small talk is important because it creates a friendly climate. It builds common bonds between you and others.
How good a conversationalist are you?
After having read and discussed the above, list down the
areas where you consider yourself weak. Follow it up with your strong points. Stand up, face the class and reveal your strength and weaknesses as far as being conversationalist is concerned
You will tell the class why English is important
and what you expect to get out of it.
You are given 5 minutes to
discus your reasons
۞Confidence Building Exercise

2. Distinguish between who you are and what are you

functioningsuccessfully and happily.
6. Cultivate people who help you grow
7. Accept challenges as motivation for you to dig your
۞Getting to Know You
Ask a friend to tell you …
“Could you tell me…”
Interview can take a variety of different formats, with reporters interviewing or experts being interviewed. Interviewers should prepare the questions beforehand and should record the interview through video/audio recording and the interview should take place in a suitable place. Interviewing your partner: You ask your partner if he would be willing to be interviewed. You may ask him what his job entails, and what he likes or dislikes his job (see the sample questions for reference)
Ask you partner to tell you ….
Your own language
● Give a brief description of your native language.
● How many different languages or dialects of your country’s official
language are spoken in your country?
● How well do you know these languages or dialects?
● How difficult would be for an English speaker to learn your language?
● Has your language ‘borrowed’ any English words and expressions?
Your language goal
● What aspects of the English language give you the most trouble: listening, comprehension, speaking, learning new words, understanding grammar, or writing?
● How quickly do you want your English to improve?
● What level of fluency are you aiming for?
Your learning style
● Do you learn best by listening to a teacher, or by studying on your own?
● Are you good at memorizing?
● Do You like to take tests?
●What was the best learning experience you ever had?
Telephoning in a language which is not you own is not easy. You should be aware
the person you are speaking to may have difficulty too. Therefore, keep the
following points in mind:
•Speak clearly. Use clear articulation and try to avoid difficult words and long
sentences if it is not necessary to use them.
•Do not speak too fast. Keep in mind that many people tend to speak too fast
when they are nervous. Hardly anyone ever speaks too slowly.
•Confirm what you have understood. This is especially important if
the other person gives addresses or dates.
•Be polite. Start and end the conversation politely. Try to avoid being too direct. In
English, this is often done by using ‘would”, example, ‘I would like to have some
•Be efficient. Make sure that you have prepared the call and know what you want
to say and how you want to say it in advance.
•Know the telephone alphabet. This is particularly important if you have to spell
names and addresses.
•Know frequently used expressions.
•Listen carefully, so that you do not need to ask the other person to repeat
