Are you ready for an “impromptu” situation?

When having a conversation in English, there are many times when you must give an answer or reply without hesitation.  You don’t have much time to think about it.








For example if I were to ask you, “what do you want to eat for lunch?”   It isn’t a very difficult question at all, but many people find this a hard one to answer quickly.  Unfortunately daily conversations will involve many of these types of decisions.  They are known as impromptu questions.




Today’s vocabulary word is “impromptu.”


[im-promp-too, -tyoo]


1. made or done without previous preparation:

an impromptu address to the unexpected crowds.


2. suddenly or hastily prepared, made, etc.:

an impromptu dinner.


3. improvised; having the character of an improvisation.


4. without preparation:

verses written impromptu.


5. something impromptu; an impromptu speech,musical composition, performance, etc.

impromptu speeches? Improve your oral expression of thought. Develop your communication skills. Develop confidence in public speaking. Learn to Think on Your Feet

Basically answering impromptu questions will help think faster and gain more confidence.  If you can talk about many things without much preparation, you can have many wonderful conversations with various types of people .
Sometimes I think impromptu parties planned within moments before it happens can be the most fun a person can have.  Also impromptu conversations may possibly be the most memorable ones you will ever be a part of.  Embrace the chance to be involved with such opportunities!
