Hi Emma, thanks for the great tips for small talks. By the way, I wonder if there are some differences between Americans and Canadians on the point of talking. When I first went to the States, strangers kept on talking endlessly, which was so new and shocking to me. On the other hand, the British seems rather quiet although they’re of course English speakers🌻.

Dear Emma
I like this video.I think, enaugh people have this problem and me too.I live in Azerbaijan and I don`t practice a lot. I am also shy and when I begin speaking English,I try to use correct sentences,because I don`t want to use false senteces so I can`t talk. I know this is my fault and I don`t proud of it. Can you give me some advice? What can I solve my self -confidence.
Good luck your work and take care yourself.

that’s awesome lesson Emma, cuz we as learners of English always stumble with to break the ice and many times it goes awkwardly without a conversation or stag with the redundant question. FORD is really light to elaborate and at the end, I believe it can go deeper cuz FORD is a key for reach it. thanks a lot, Emma.

Hello Emma, you have done an excellent presentation for a great method, I hope to apply it every day. However, I’ve wondered when I’ve been in the elevator, subway, bus stop, square, etc. if there will be a method to talk face to face with someone when they are connected to social networks and sending texting?
Nowadays it’s really difficult to talk with someone even it was a small conversation.
All the best wishes for you.

Tuesday, October 24th 2017

cheers darling

Tuesday, October 31st 2017

I really really love the accent it was very understandable and keeping me interested all the video also I learned my speaking though
thanks teacher Emma

Tuesday, October 31st 2017

I like this FORD approach in making small talk. I’ve been in those situation where I don’t know what to say or ask because I’m afraid I might look insensitive or nosy. My favorite is the “What’s keeping you busy these days?” question. I’ll keep this method in mind. I appreciate this lesson!

Friday, November 3rd 2017

Amazing tipos and very useful.I’m improving my English skills very much. Thanks, Emma.

Thanks for the lesson

Tuesday, January 2nd 2018

Hi Emma! I am a huge fan of you since I started learning with engVid for ages. Thanks for your useful videos all along. However, I would like to know that in American English, do you use the verb “do” instead of “play” when you talk about the term “sport(s)”? Because, I got to learn from the BBC Learning English that we do have to use the verb “do” instead of “play” when we talk about sports in general, such as “Do you do any sports?”. But, we shall use do, play or go with individual sports according their functionality. For example, (1) I do yoga, (2) I play football and (3) I go swimming.

However, in this video, you did use the verb “play” instead of “do” when you said, ” Do you play any sports?” What do you think about this difference? Thanks Emma! Hope to hear from you soon.

Wednesday, January 3rd 2018
