how to ask for opinions in EnglishToday it’s time to “unlearn” what your English teacher taught you about the verb “to find.”

On one of our surveys we ask our listeners “how did you find our website?”

Most people say they found us through Google or You Tube but once in a while someone will say “Great!”

Some people are confused by this question.

If you respond to this question by saying great then you think we are asking you for your opinion.

There are more modern, current ways to ask for an opinion.
