What is English Conversation?
Conversation English is different from written English, because in written English there are correct ways of writing, using correct grammer. But in spoken English there are many other considerations...........
When speaking in English it is better to consider, "What is appropriate English?" This can depend on many things: Friends speaking to each other talk differently to a person speaking to another person that you may not know very well. Also, people talking on the telephone will speak differently to people speaking face to face.
Over the next few weeks in conversation English we will be learning how to communicate if you were living in an English speaking country. For example knowing how to be able to request help in a shop or ask a question to a stranger.
