Keep the dream alive– we’re at episode number 5! Here’s the latest episode of my speaking and communication focused podcast: CommDao Speak Easy. We’re going to do things just a tad differently. One of the most important steps to improving is making sure you take time to review. In this episode, there will be a brand new dialogue, but all the key phrases will come from the previous 4 episodes.
The show rundown:
- Opening Dialogue (Sample Conversation)
- Key Phrases (Vocabulary from the Dialogue)
- Take 2 (Sentence Variation)
- Pronunciation Practice
- Faux Pas of the Day (Explanation of Common Mistakes in Communication)
Remember: 1) You can download the audio 2) You can adjust the speed
Here are the show notes:
Kevin: Sarah, you ready to head out yet?
Sarah: Don’t rush me.
Kevin: Look, you’re going to rock whatever outfit you pick, so just pick one.
Sarah: Kevin, I already I told you: don’t rush me! Cut it out!
Kevin: Babe, just because you feel bad for Nik, don’t take it out on me. I mean, you did tell him about us, right?
Sarah: Not exactly.
Kevin: What do you mean “Not exactly”?
Sarah: I told Nik I couldn’t date him because… I’m dying.
Kevin: Why would you do that? Why wouldn’t you just be up front? I’d normally say “Don’t sweat it“, but man, Sarah!
“Why would you do that?“
- What were you thinking?
- Are you out of your mind?
- What’s going on in that head of yours?
Oh, Faux Pas
Shyness is a personality trait, not a speaking style.
