In this lesson, you can learn about something that will help you to sound more like a native speaker when you speak English. What is this thing? It’s vague language. 'Vague' means that something is not clear or detailed. For example, if you ask me what I did yesterday, and I reply, “Just some stuff at home,” that is a vague answer. I’m not giving you details.
Using vague language will make your English sound more natural and closer to native English.
You can learn:
- How and why to use vague language to sound more natural when you speak English.
- Useful words and phrases you can use when you want to be vague.
- When not to use vague language in English!
