When someone else talks, what’s a good way to make sure you understood?
Remember this phrase:
"Let me repeat what you said, to make sure I understood you correctly…"
I’m a native English speaker. I still use this phrase 10 times a day.
Want to improve your language and communications ability?
Use that phrase. Your listening ability will improve, and your connections to other people will improve, too.
