CommDao Speak Easy Podcast 5: Review

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:

Opening Dialogue

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!

Take 2

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.


Special thanks to:
