“Listens to and engages partner”…
While listening, ask open-ended questions.
That can’t be answered with a simple “yes” or
“no”, and that invite a deeper explanation.
Questions starting with “why” or “how”.
Don’t “dominate” the conversation
Keep your responses short and natural
Ask your partner what he or she thinks, to give
them a chance to talk.
This is NOT a time to give a speech!
