This Phrase Bank is divided into three parts: conversational phrases, idioms, and idiomatic phrases. Each section is designed to help learners of English improve their fluency and sound like a native speaker. Conversation is largely made up of a stock of phrases inserted as a response to their conversational partner and as a link to what has been previously said. Learn these by heart: they should flow automatically and can be used as fillers to give you time to formulate your message. Each item has been chosen primarily for its frequency (high frequency phrases) and its range of use (applicable to most contexts).
