English Lesson: 13 Reactions & Responses

A quick and easy English Lesson for this week. This requests come from Masaya who wanted to learn how to react to a conversation besides saying “Oh really?”

  • Ya don’t say?
  • Oh yeah?
  • Huh (it’s better to extend the sound on this; if you keep it short it sounds more harsh)
  • Wow (can also be extended for added effect)
  • Geez (can also be extended)
  • Whoa (can also be extended)
  • Seriously?
  • No way
  • What?
  • Ah, I gotcha
  • Ah, I feel ya
  • Oh, I totally get what you’re saying (be sure to have your rhythm and cadence in order)
  • OH. MY. GOD. (the slower you say this, the more impactful it is)
