  • Sometimes the things people say

  • don't mean what we think they do.

  • and that can lead to misunderstandings.

  • Thinking about context is essential

  • if you want to understand what people really mean.

  • Mark's not very good at this,

  • but luckily I'm here to help him

  • work out what people really mean.

  • Chloe: Are you really wearing that hat?

  • Claire: Of course Mark is wearing that hat,

  • it's on his head.

  • So why is Chloe asking

  • him that question.

  • Any ideas?

  • Let's watch and find out.

  • Mark: Well, I'll be off to Dave's party.

  • Chloe: Oh right.... Where did you get that hat?

  • Mark: I just picked it up down the market.

  • Chloe: Have you looked in the mirror?

  • Mark: Well, of course

  • it means that I can really admire my new hat.

  • Chloe: Are you really wearing that hat?

  • Mark: Well...

  • it's on my head isn't it?

  • So yes, I am wearing this hat.

  • Well, I'm off to the party.

  • Chloe: What's up?

  • Mark: Everyone was laughing at my hat.

  • They said it looked ridiculous.

  • Why didn't you tell me?

  • Chloe: But, I tried.

  • You did?

  • I don't understand.

  • Mark: I don't understand.

  • Chloe said that she tried to warn me,

  • but all she did was just ask me some questions.

  • Claire: No, Chloe did...

  • those questions she asked...

  • they weren't really questions.

  • Mark: What do you mean?

  • Claire: These were questions used as warnings.

  • Chloe wasn't looking for an answer.

  • In fact, the answers were obvious.

  • She knew that he was wearing that hat,

  • she could see that he was looking in the mirror.

  • She was just trying to draw his attention

  • to the hat...

  • and it's a lot politer than saying

  • take off that hat, it's ridiculous!

  • Now, these questions are written in the same way

  • as normal questions,

  • so to spot them try asking yourself this:

  • is this information that

  • the other person really needs?

  • Are the answers obvious?

  • Listen for their tone of voice,

  • questions that are used as warnings

  • often use the same intonation as a statement.

  • Listen to:

  • Where did you get that hat?

  • And

  • Where did you get that hat?

  • In this case, Chloe was warning about

  • his hat looking silly,

  • but they can be about lots of different things

  • the weather,

  • time,

  • people's ideas.

  • You'll see more examples

  • at the end of the programme.

  • Mark: I feel like I want to try that again.

  • Chloe: Are you still off to Dave's party?

  • Mark: Yes... I'm off now.

  • Chloe: Are you really wearing that hat?

  • Mark: You don't think it's a good idea?

  • Chloe: Erm...

  • I'm not sure it's your colour.

  • Mark: Oh...

  • um...

  • Alright, well...

  • Maybe I'll leave it at home then.
