  • As you have already seen that Vanesha had a bad date experience, therefore in this blog we’ll discuss how to impress a girl with fluent English on your first date.
Perfect!, Let’s re-play the date here
So here Mansi is going to play the character of Vanesha’s date “Rohan”.Mansi(Rohan)– Hey Vanesha!
Vanesha– Hey Rohan so good to see you.
Rohan– I’m good too.
Vanesha– What ….??
Rohan– Bahar bahut garmi thi .
Vanesha– Yes but this place is quite interesting. I love the ambience. Don’t you like it?
Rohan– Yes..Yes.. I like it. Are you still studying?
Vanesha – Yes I’m a student of Geography in college. BTW you asked: Am I still studying? Do I look old?
Rohan– No no, I do not mean that. Mera Matlab wo nhi tha. Ab is Geography me padhne k liye hai hi Kya?.
Vanesha – There’s so much to explore…
Rohan– Achaaaa ab Geography ki class mat do. Kuch order kare?
Vanesha – Ya, sure I’ll have cold coffee.
Rohan– Ooo…Waiter? Madam k liye cold coffee or mere liye chai.
Vanesha – So what are your hobbies?
Rohan– I play cricket mast din Bhar match dekhta hu . aa what are your hobbies?
Vanesha – Well, I love writing poetry in the free time.

Vanesha – Rohan, I meant I’m going to the washroom? Toilet? (Irritated)
Rohan– Okay jao jao ( embarrassed )
Vanesha – Oh my god so that was a horrible date experience. I hope I meet a decent guy next time.So, from this roleplay, it is clear that Girl was totally annoyed with the guy on the date and of course, it was equally embarrassing for the guy as well.
Now, let’s see how could Rohan make a good impression on this date? And this time Vanesha will play the role of Rohan to show us how she wanted Rohan to behave on the date.

Ideal Conversation

Vanesha(Rohan)– Hi Mansi, I’m Rohan.
Mansi– Hey Rohan, it’s nice to see you.
Rohan-Pleasure is all mine, So how are you Mansi?
Mansi– Well, I’m pretty good thanks. What about you?

Rohan– Excuse me, please? ( calling waiter )
Could you please get one ginger tea and one cold coffee?
Mansi– Even my mother likes cold coffee and rest all of us are chai person.
Rohan– okay, That’s so sweet, in my family everybody likes to have coffee.
Mansi– So, who else is in your family?
Rohan– I have one younger brother and my parents. And in your family?
Mansi– Well, we have quite joint family. Chacha Chachi aur dadi also live with us. I have one elder sister also.
Rohan– Wow I must say you’re very lucky. We are a nuclear family. My parents had a love marriage. They used to teach in the same college.
Mansi– Wow, mine had an arranged marriage. So do you believe in love?
Rohan– Oh Yes I do…

And the conversation went on and on. So, guys that’s how you can make a good impression on your first date.

 

Conclusion

Regardless of how well you dressed up on your date, or even apply the best perfume you have but all these things are useless until you don’t know how to express yourself you’ll lose that opportunity of making your first impression.

Because when you are able to express them you’re able to impress. And that is what Vanesha did when playing the role of Rahul, by having a genuine smile on her face, talking slowly so that the person understands about my likes /dislikes. And genuinely taking interest in the person who you’re sitting with.
And one more thing – It’s not just to make the first impression but also maintain it as well through your time on that date.

All you have to do is to be yourself.

Pay attention to what you’re saying. Take a keen interest in listening to the other person as well. You can even talk about the person’s family, occupation or dreams indirectly.

You must always give your perspective and respect her opinion too! And if you don’t understand or aren’t aware about something, it’s always a good idea to ask questions. This is the best way to keep a conversation going. And while asking questions ask open ended questions that invite someone to speak – do not ask questions that make someone uncomfortable on the first date.

How Video Games can help you to Remove Hesitation & Speak English Fluently?

How Video Games can help you to Remove Hesitation
How Video Games can help you to Remove Hesitation

How to get over your fear of being judged & speak English like you’re playing a video game?

  • Today we are going to uncover a big secret for all of you – ‘the real trick of speaking English confidently’.
    Have you ever thought that while filling any form, why written and spoken English capability is asked differently?
    People think that it is quite obvious that if you know English well, you also know how to write and speak English equally?
    But it’s not like that! It is not at all necessary that if you are good at writing or reading English, then your spoken English is also good. Many times people with lower proficiency in English speak fluently while the higher proficiency one’s stutter with aaa… auu…ooo… umm.
When you speak in any language, it all comes down to your level of confidence and your fear of being judged. Even when things are clear up here our nerves can affect our speech. In such situation either we stammer or we make grammatical mistakes, which in turns make us more nervous and this vicious cycle continue until we lose our confidence.

 

Now this is the root cause of this problem, but what is the solution for it? We found out that best solution for this problem is playing video games. You must be surprised, in a few moments we will make it clear, but first tell us, have you ever played video games in your childhood? Or do you still play games on your phone like Candy Crush, Subway Surfer, Temple Run, etc. ? Definitely the answer will be Yes! Most of us have and still do play one or the other game regularly.

 

Now, it’s time to take learning from them.

 

When you play any game, your target is to cross the level or to achieve a certain number of coins and whether you are good at it or not, you concentrate and totally dedicate yourself to achieve that target. And if you sit back to analyze every step while playing game, then times up and you lose that game because you did not achieve the set target in the given time.

 

Now when it comes to English speaking, your focus should be the target, i.e. getting your point across. The main point is that the listener should understand your views. If you focus on what you want to say, the words will follow, but if you give all your focus on saying it correctly, you might lose sight of your point and starts fumbling and feeling conscious.

 

But who are you afraid of? The one with whom you are conversing in English, or someone from the Society, you developed a thinking that they know better English than you. But that’s not the reason you’re Just scared of “Shame,” the reason for your fear is “what people will say” or “people will laugh at me”

 

You are scared of that the society might laugh at you and may not encourage you. Our video games, even teach us to overcome this fear as well. Imagine you are at a gaming arcade or fun zone, now when you play here you are playing for fun and you are not bothered about who’s watching you or what might that person say. In fact, many times you also get encouragement because no one is there to judge you.

 

If you play these games in pressure, it is quite obvious that mistakes will occur. When you start thinking that you have to play better to impress people, then this can increase your chances of mistakes. Instead of this, think like “I have to convey my point, maybe people will judge me, but if I am able to understand what the person is trying to convey and I am able to convey my thoughts then this is itself a wonderful start.

 

Let me cite an example; remember the speech of Akshay Kumar in Padman that he gives to the foreigners in broken English. Akshay was having confidence within himself, and he explained all what he wanted to, in that inaccurate English and got appreciation as well.

 

It is entirely obvious that if you speak out with confidence, then it might be possible that you might nullify those few mistakes gradually. But if you will not be able to speak because of the fear of mistakes, then what is the use of it?
To build your confidence while speaking English, imagine yourself as that child who is learning to speak. He does not fear what someone will say, he just tries to learn something new each day.

 

He makes mistakes and the people laugh at him as well, even then too child never quits walking on the path of learning. There is an idiom in English “Practice makes a man perfect”. So do not fear what people might say, just concentrate on what you have to say and say it with confidence.
