How to get back on topic
If you are like me then quite often you might find yourself talking about something then getting sidetracked. This means that you start talking about a different topic, maybe because you've been interrupted or maybe just because you've lost your train of thought.
When you want the conversation to get back on topic, back to the subject you were talking about originally, there are a number of useful words and expressions you can use naturally to make this change. In this programme we hear a few of these different phrases.
When you've listened to the programme, don't forget to practise what you've learned with the quiz below!
