CommDao Speak Easy Podcast 10: Review

Here’s the latest episode of my speaking and communication focused podcast: CommDao Speak Easy. As is the plan with every 5 episodes, it’s time to reflect on what we’ve learned. 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

Frank: My bad, Sarah. I didn’t recognize it was you.
Sarah: Hah, it’s okay. It’s been awhile. How’s the girlfriend?
Frank: Oh, actually I’m afraid Liz and I broke up.

Sarah: Oh…
Frank: But that was ages ago. I’ve been seeing someone new for this past month. 
Sarah: That’s a real shocker. Famous Frankie. I guess that rules out the chance between us, hm?
Frank: But Sarah, why would there ever be a chance between us? You have man hands.
Sarah: What? No! I don’t have man hands. Ah, it was just a dream. Damn it. Even if my dreams I can’t hook up with Frankie.

Take 2

It’s been awhile

  • Long time no see
  • It’s been ages
  • It’s been too long

Oh, Faux Pas

Don’t share your dreams.
