English conversations: asking questions in English!

Asking questions in English is an important part of communication.

In fact, if you know how to ask and respond to questions, you can have a great conversation with anyone, anywhere!

In this video lesson below, you’ll watch some clips with people asking questions. Simply watch the conversation clips and then answer the questions.

By the way, conversations are a great way to learn a language. Why?

Because when people talk casually in English, they generally use simple, basic language for easy communication. And all the vocabulary and expressions they use are useful for you too.

Good luck!
