A UK Student Holds a Workshop on “Talking on the Phone in English”

Many people know that it is not easy to conduct a phone conversation in English without sufficient practice, so the first-year day-department students specializing in Economics were happy to take part in a workshop on this topic which was held for them by Charlie Fletcher, a student of the University of Edinburgh. 

Charlie prepared a series of clichés and catchphrases necessary for successful telephone communication, and illustrated their use with examples. Then, together with Charlie, the students did exercises to consolidate the studied material. In order to control vocabulary acquisition, Charlie gave a small test to the students, with which everyone coped successfully. Finally, the students were divided into pairs and they made small dialogues on the topic under study. Charlie Fletcher listened carefully to the students’ mini-conversations on the phone, and made small corrections to make them sound more natural. Of course, those who were lucky to work with a British student worked with special pleasure. 

In general, Charlie Fletcher was able to actively involve all students into the educational process, who undoubtedly received a positive charge of energy that helps increase motivation to continue working on improving the English-language communicative competence.
