Will you be socializing with others this holiday season? Remember your good communication strategies!
Use speaker clues: You can say something like, “I think you said something about eating dessert, is that correct?”
Rephrase instead of repeat, they can change a sentence from “I really like all of your decorations” to “Those lights that you hung in the living room look very nice.”
Ask the speaker to slow down their rate of speech
