One thing I try to keep on telling students is when the student says, I want to speak English, I always say, learn how to ask question.
If you can ask very good questions, people talk to you.
Sure, maybe, they will keep on talking.
And you can ask another question.
Then they will ask you to enter like, your opinion.
Then you enter the conversation.
If you can ask good question, you can begin a conversation.
And then if you can get another good question taking key words from that person’s answer, you can keep that conversation going.
Or you can direct the conversation to wherever you want to go.
So one of the keys of learning is how do I ask a good question.
