beginner
A:Are you good at making decisions?
B: Not really. Sometimes, I even let other people make key decision for me.
A: What kinds of decisions do you leave to other people?
B: There are basic decisions like which restaurant to go to. I can never seem to choose. I let my parents make big decisions for me. They chose my university and my course. I ended up studying something that I didn’t like, although the university they choose was fine.
A: Your parents will be choosing your girlfriend if you aren’t careful! Why don’t you try being more decisive? Start with some basic ones. When your friends are discussing which restaurant to eat at, make a suggestion. As you haven’t suggested anything before, they’ll probably accept your choice.
B: That’s a good idea. You’re very decisive, I’ve noticed. So, which bar are we going to this evening?
A: I can’t make a decision. You’ll have to put forward an idea.
B: you see? You’re becoming more decisive already!

A: 你是否善于做决定?
B: 的确不行。有时,我甚至让其他人为我做重要决定。
A: 哪种决定你让他人为你做?
B: 有的基本决定如去那家饭店等,我好象从来就不会选择。我让父母给我做重大决定。他们为我选择了大学及其专业。尽管他们选择的大学不错,可我却在学习我不喜欢的专业。
A: 如果你不小心,你的父母会选择你的女朋友。你为什么不尝试更为果断呢?从一些基本的决定开始。当你的朋友都讨论哪些餐厅吃饭时,提出一个建议。当你提出建议时,他们可能会接受你的选择。
B: 好主意。你很果断的,我已经注意到了。那么,我们将今天晚上去哪个酒吧?
A: 我不能决定。你必须提出一个想法。
B: 瞧,你已经变得更会决定了!

Intermediate
A: I find it really hard to express myself in class. I have lots of ideas, but they never seem to come out of my mouth.
B: Let me give you a little advice. You know what the topics are going to be, so prepares what you would like to say in advance.
A: I often do, but I’m worried about the responses from other people.
B: You have to be realistic. Not everyone is going to agree with you, but people will respect your opinion and they will respect the fact that you have contributed something to the discussion.
A: I’m worried that what I say will not make sense.
B: We could chat about the topic before class. I could check that what you want to say is logical and it would also give you a chance to practice speaking.
A: That’s a good idea. What should I do if I am in two minds about a topic?
B: That’s easy. Express both possibilities. People will think that you are pretty smart to be able to look at the topic from more than one angle.
A: I didn’t realize that speaking in class could be so easy.
B: The most difficult thing is being able to predict what other people will say. They will reply to your statements, but you can’t be sure how.

A: 我发现真的很难在课上表达自己。我有许多想法,但是他们好像从未从我的嘴里说出来。
B: 我给你一点建议。你知道话题会是什么,就提前准备你想说的。
A: 我经常做,但是我担心其他人的反应。
B: 你必须面对现实。不是每个人都会同意你的意见,但是人们会尊重你的意见,他们会尊重事实,就是你尽力参加了讨论。
A: 我担心我说的将毫无意义。
B: 我们上课前就此话题聊天。我能检查你想要的说的合不合乎逻辑,而且还会给你机会练习讲话。
A: 好主意。如果我对一个题目犹豫不决,我该做什么?
B: 那很容易。表达两种可能性。人们将认为你能从一个以上角度看问题是相当聪明的。
A: 我没意识到在课上讲话能够如此简单。
B: 最困难事情能预计其他人将说什么。他们将对你的陈述作回应,但是你不能确定他们怎样回答。
