Listen to a new episode of Speak English Now Podcast, your favorite material for practicing your spoken and heard English. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to improve your English more effectively.
Hi everyone! I am Georgiana, founder of speakenglishpodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently.
In this episode, I’ll teach you how to compliment a woman if you are a man. I’m sure this will be very helpful 🙂
And after that, you’ll practice grammar with a Point of View story.
Complimenting a woman can make her feel special by showing her how wonderful you think she is. However, some guys don’t know how to make good compliments. They either say the obvious or exaggerate compliments.
As a woman, I have received a good part of the compliments both requested and unrequested in my life. Some comments have been sweet, some shocking, and some even repulsive.
Before complimenting a woman, you must first determine if the context is appropriate.
Where is the conversation taking place? Are you at work, in a public place, or are you alone? It all depends on the physical context of the conversation.
What’s your relationship with her? Are you strangers, friends, colleagues? If you are strangers, an unjustified compliment can be met with hostility, even if you don’t say anything inappropriate.
No matter the context, however, one of the key things you must-do, if you want to be successful in complimenting a woman, is to have at least one conversation with her, even if only for a few minutes.
You might consider complimenting a woman for something other than her appearance. Give her praise for her accomplishments, tell her she’s funny, or that you loved the cookies she made the other day.
Show that you’re making an effort to get to know her and that you’re not just interested in what she looks like.
