What's the point?

In case you don’t know the answer

  • I don’t know.
  • I don’t know anything about that.
  • I haven’t thought about that.
If the question is too vague

  • I’m sorry, could you be more specific?
  • What do you mean exactly?
  • What’s the point?

Speaking 1: What’s the point?

Ask your partner the following questions:

  • How many are there in your family?
  • What’s the most important thing in your life?
  • What is/was your GPA in university?
  • Do you have a girlfriend/ boyfriend?

If you need time to think

  • Hmm, let me see…
  • Let me think about that.
  • Well…Good question.
If you don't understand

  • Pardon me? Could you please repeat that?
  • I don’t understand.
  • I didn’t hear what you said.
  • What does that mean?

  • Do you believe in ESP?
  • Have you ever been to a BYOB party?
  • What’s the purpose of life?

If you feel your English is not good enough

  • I know what you’re talking about, but it’s difficult for me to explain in English.
  • I’m not sure if I can answer properly in English, but let me try.

If the question is too personal or rude

  • I’m sorry, I’d rather not say.
  • That’s a little personal.
  • I’d rather not talk about it.
  • It’s none of your business.

Speaking 3: It’s none of your business!

Ask your partner the following questions:

  • How many men/women have you kissed?
  • Are you a good kisser?
  • How much money do you make?
