PASSAGE (4)

4. Read the given passage and answer the questions that follow:

Conversation is indeed the most easily teachable of all arts. All you need to do in order to become a good conversationalist is to find a subject that interests you and your listener. There are, for example, numberless hobbies to talk about. But the important thing is that you must talk about the other fellow’s hobby rather than your own. Therein lies the secret of your popularity. Talk to your friends about the things that interest them and you will get a reputation for good fellowship, charming wit and brilliant mind. There is nothing that pleases people so much as your interest in their interests. A good conversationalist can be effective only if he/she is able to blend humour, wit, topics of good interest, presence of mind, knowledge of various things, logical thinking etc. in fine proportion. Praise and appreciate people, for nothing pleases a man more than appreciation and flattery. It is just as important to know what subjects to avoid as what subject to select for good conversation. Be careful to avoid unpleasant topics. Avoid talking about yourself unless you are asked to do so. Use simple words and let the conversation be interesting. Avoid flowery use of language. Do not repeat the things or talk boastfully about your own self. Let the talk be lively and interesting. People are interested in their own problems, not yours; sickness or death bores everybody. Similarly age-old tales, happenings of the past even though they may be real, will never interest the listeners. The only one who willingly listens to such talk is the doctor, because he gets paid for it.

On the basis of your reading of the passage answer the following questions:

a. What are the basic needs of good conversation?

A.______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

b. What should be avoided in good conversation?

A.______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

c. How can conversation be made effective?

d. What topics do not interest people?
