Spanish Video Lesson – Getting to Know a Spanish Speaker

Ask Good Questions and Listen

I want you to be a good conversationalist. When you have an opportunity to speak with a native Spanish speaker, don’t just say hello and ask them how they are doing and stop. Those are BORING conversations. In fact, it’s not really a conversation in my opinion. It’s good to say hello and find out how they are doing, but don’t stop there. This is a good opportunity for you to learn. Ask good questions and listen. If you haven’t already, watch the video above, then visit Visual Link Spanish on Facebook to practice.

Here is the vocabulary from the video:

Are you from here? ¿Eres tú de aquí?
Where do you work? ¿Dónde trabajas?
Tell me about your family. Cuéntame de tu familia.
I am learning Spanish. Estoy aprendiendo español.
Do you have any advice for me? ¿Tienes algún consejo para mí?
Can I help you with something? ¿Puedo ayudarte con algo?
Could you speak slower, please? ¿Podrías hablar más despacio, por favor?
What do you like to do? ¿Qué te gusta hacer?
What do you like to eat? ¿Qué te gusta comer?
Thanks for talking with me. Gracias por hablar conmigo.

The key to being a good conversationalist is listening. Ask good questions. Ask fun questions. Show the person that you care about them because you listen well. Listen to the natives and learn from them.
