English romantic expressions

What is Small talk?

Small talk is the type of English language that we use to make polite conversation about unimportant or uncontroversial matters. There are many romantic expressions that are weaved into Small talk almost very subtly.

Small talk is often used in English as a way to either open conversation, build bridges between awkward silences in conversation, or as an attempt to remove any awkward feelings or emotions that could or are affecting either or any parties in the conversation.

Small talk is not just a device for conversational language but one that also utilises the culture of politeness within the English language.

Examples of Small talk from the video lesson:

Shall we = Is a verbal invitation. In this case to drink the drinks.

Let’s = A verbal agreement. In this case. Let’s drink our drinks.

English love expressions:

You may hold my hand for a while, but you hold my heart forever.

You are my sole mate.

You mean more to me than you will ever know.
