AEE 168: How to be the King or Queen of the Social Scene in English

crown- English social scene

Do you know how to socialize in English?

Have you been to any social events lately?

Today, we discuss three phrases that will help you be a smooth communicator at your next social event!

Socializing is an art.   It’s important to be smooth and confident, but also to say the right thing.  Here are three common phrases to help you get started:

  1. “So, are you planning any trips this summer?”  This is a great question to ask because travel connects to so many other subjects.
  2. “How do you know the host/hostess?” Answers to this might include, “We met in college,” or “We met at work.” If you’ve known somebody a long time and are very familiar with them, you might answer, “We go way back.”
  3. “So, how do you keep yourself busy?” or “What do you do in your free time?” This is a broad and casual question that asks about hobbies, lifestyle and work.

Have you had any experiences socializing in English?
