Ask questions to find out how language fits into their day-to-day—rather than telling them what their day-to-day should look like. Being thoughtful about how you ask your questions creates authentic connections and leads to better outcomes.
Let's start here:
|Asking open-ended questions
|Asking yes/no questions
|Restating exact words
|Stopping to summarize
|Waiting to summarize
|Asking questions one at a time
|Asking multi-step/multi-part questions
|Following with questions
|Asking leading questions
|Using what, who, and when questions
|Using why questions
