Making Appointments:
Making an appointment can take you awhile if both the parties have a busy schedule , therefore requesting for an appointment and suggesting the day and time is favorable.

1. Can we arrange for a meeting?
2. If possible, I would like to come by and see you.
3. How about about Monday?
4. Is next Tuesday convenient for you?
5. Would Thursday suit you?

If the suggested time suits you the phrases that can be used to agree are :
1. That sounds good/ great.
2. Tuesday would be perfect.
3. That's fine

Declining and Suggesting
If the suggested time is not convenient for you, it is important to decline and suggest an alternative time.
1. I'm afraid I have got another meeting.
2. Tuesday seems to be a little difficult.
3. I would prefer to meet on Friday. IS that okay?

Cancelling and Changing
If you can't make it for the meeting because something else has come, it is important to cancel or change the time of the meeting.
1. Something urgent has come up, can we fix it for some other time?
2. Something has just cropped up and I won't be able to meet you today.

Do you know what "in a nutshell" means? What about "the bottom line"? They both have in common that they announce a conclusion. In this English class, I will teach you some common expressions we use in speech that tell the listener that we are about to conclude what we want to say. You will learn "to sum up", "all in all", "in a nutshell", "the bottom line is", and "for these reasons". I will also explain some expressions that are useful in writing but sound strange in speech. Last but not least, test your knowledge by taking our quiz at the end of this video.

1. Monitor body language: You may want to start conversing with an unknown person, be it a co-passenger while you’re travelling, a new classmate, someone who is at the bus stop or anyone whom you wish to speak to. So, first observe what they are doing, whether they are preoccupied with something else. Don’t just barge in to start a conversation. A good time to start is when the person is browsing their mobile phone. They would be more free and relaxed at that time.

2. Collect Information: Collect the information from the person before speaking. This has to be done subtly. See what the person is doing, what he is reading or what game he is playing. This gives you an idea of what interests the person. So the moment you start a conversation, you know what to talk about.

3. Self-confidence: After monitoring their body language and collecting some information, it’s time to get up the courage. Don’t have cold feet or start fumbling. Keep yourself positive by believing I can do it’. Just go up wit confidence and say ‘hi’ to the person.

4. Ask open ended questions: Close ended questions give you answers only in a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’. But open ended questions give more scope for continuing a conversation as it the answers are elaborative. They keep the conversation rolling and interesting.

5. Leave them wanting more: After starting a conversation, don’t be in a hurry to end it. Go slow, relax. Make it fun and interesting that it leaves the person wanting for more the next time they meet you. So, have a positive and a good approach when you are going to start a conversation.
