Using expression in conversation has great impact in relationship. Student should understand on how to use it and what condition require it. In this article, I’m trying to explain few simple thing about ‘expression‘.
What is expression? Expression is a situation when we show our feeling to the other people. When a some one asking a question, it is best not only to answer the question abut also showing the expression at the same time. As an example, if our friend ask “Do you know how to learn effectively?”. Kindly answer the question honestly and don’t forget to smile at them. Smiling at this even was called as showing “expression”. “Expression” may not the same as “expressing opinion”.
As human, we cannot live without other. It is advised to keep good relationship. The best way to keep good interaction is by asking the condition. We can use “How are you?”. It is a type of question which is widely used to ask a condition of a someone. They will answer the question based on their condition. Most of the times they will say “I’m Fine, thank you”. What to do then? Smile at them and say few words. Smiling is an activity to show happy expression.
Sad Expression is the opposite of happy expression. If someone told us about sad events such as losing money or stuffs, it is encouraged to show them sad expression.

Just shake our head to the left and right and they will know what it means. Expression also useful to answer question make the answer looks formal. We can say “no” to refuse a something. Shaking the head to left and right or give a sign if it is ‘no’. Combining both expression and expressing opinion will result in good result.
