Good morning, good afternoon, or even good evening, depending of course on what part
of the big wide world you happen to be in right now. I am Julian, and this is Doing
English. In today’s lesson, I am going to discuss one of your popular questions, How to respond
quickly in English?
I would say that this just comes down to practice, really. If you think about it, maybe when
somebody asks you a question and you can’t answer quickly or automatically or you need
to talk about something but it just doesn’t come as fast or as easily if you would like
it to. If you think about it, that isn’t really something that is unique to speaking
in a second language. For example, if somebody asks me – In English, if somebody asks me
a question that is very difficult for me, it’s not easy to respond to that very quickly
and automatically. I will have to think about it a little bit and maybe I won’t know the
answer and I’ll ”Um” and “Ah, “Umm, “Uh” a lot and maybe I’ll get confused
and I won’t be able to answer in a kind of smooth sort of way. And that might be the
same for any kind of topic that I don’t talk about a lot. Whether that’s in my first
language English or in my second language it doesn’t really matter. Maybe it’s more
obvious when it’s in your second language and you’re more conscious of it. But I think
it is something which happens in your first language too and I think practice is the key
And again if you think about how you use your first language, there are probably some things
that you talk about again and again and again and you can discuss very automatically and
very smoothly. For example if somebody asked me a question about learning English, this
is something that I talk about almost all day, every day. I am an English teacher so
of course I do. So it’s very easy for me to respond very quickly and very smoothly
to most questions. And try and think of something that you also talk about a lot and kind of
conversations you may be having again and again and again and you’ll probably be able
to speak about those very, very easily, very automatically, very smoothly because it’s
something that you do again and again and again. It’s repetition that is the key I
think. So when it comes to speaking English, the first thing you’ve got to do is understand
that at first it’s not going to come out smoothly because repetition is the key. And
presumably you will be having the same kinds of conversations again and again in English
just like you do in your native language, so it will get easier overtime.
But what you can also do is if you know you’re going to have to talk about some particular
topic is just plan in your head and think about what you’re going to say in advance.
And think about questions you will be asked and plan them in your head. And certainly,
if for example like you’re giving like an academic preparation at your school or university
or something you can kind of guess what the questions you’re going to be asked at and
prepare for those. And if you do get a question that you’re not prepared for and you are
unable to respond quickly and easily, don’t feel bad about it because again it’s something
native speakers have a problem with too it’s just more obvious when you’re an English
learner I think. So yeah, if you want to be able to speak and respond more automatically
and more quickly, I think repetition is the key. Just don’t worry about it in the beginning
and just you know as you have the same conversations again and again and again and answer the same
questions again and again and again and it gets easy. Simple as that.
That is it for today’s lesson I think. If you have any questions or any lessons request
of your own, just leave a comment in the comment’s box under this video and we’ll check that
at some point. Yeah, that’s it for today. See you in the next lesson.
