Showing interest

In a conversation, it is very important (and polite) to show that we are interested in the other speaker, in his/her experiences and opinions. Imagine you have a chance to talk briefly to the people you listened to in the previous exercise. Read what they say (clues 1-5) and respond appropriately. Below, you will find some useful phrases:

Really?

Great! / Brilliant! / Cool! / Wow!

How interesting!

That’s great/brilliant/fascinating/amazing.

That sounds interesting/great/brilliant/unbelievable.

Echo questions, e.g.

Have you?

Did you?

Is it?

Can you?
