You've probably learned by now that spoken English is a bit different than written English. As you learn English, you learn how to write it properly, and how to speak it slowly. Native English speakers tend to compress their sentences though when they speak at a normal rate. Sometimes a whole sentence sounds like one long word!

In this English lesson I'll go over the common, proper structure for forming questions, and then I'll let you know how I would actually say these in a regular English conversation. I'll be sure to give you the format for questions starting with: Where, What, How, Why, and When. Even though these questions will be about a trip, they can be adapted for any situation.

So take the time to enjoy this free English class. Watch it a few times and try to shadow me (repeat after me) when I ask the questions and give the responses so that you can train yourself to sound a bit more natural when having an English conversation.

Have a great day!
