English Lesson: “What’s the word for ~?”

Most English learners stick to a very passive role when they’re starting out. They speak only when spoken too. But if you really want to make strides in your English speaking, you need to learn how to take initiative.

One common scenario is giving up on a conversation when you don’t know the specific word. This faulty thinking because it places too much emphasis on having “perfect” vocabulary.

A great communicator isn’t someone who always has the best words to say. A great communicator is someone who knows the right words to keep the conversation flowing.
