Situation Based Conversations


Situation Based Conversations

This course is a direct interactive course based on real life situations. The conversations begin in certain situations and the characteristics of the conversation depend on the situation. The situation demands certain words and vocabulary and once you are comfortable with the vocabulary of the situation then initiating the conversation and involving in it becomes easy. E.g. If you are in bank for some work then you know exactly what all is done there. But if you are aware of terminology used in that situation then you can carry out things more easily. These are situational conversations which remain more or less same every time and whenever you face them. And these situations are ample in daily life. Imagine your daily routine right from when you get up, then dress up, then breakfast, then leave for work etc. and every activity of yours will need some conversation if you need some help.

These situations are very common and come casually and routinely hence if these are mastered then daily life with the language skills will make you more comfortable.

There are hundreds of situations one can imagine which are common right from buying different things to moving around the city or gathering information.

This course is full of different situations and emphasize is given on words and vocabulary used in these situations making it a base for any conversation.
