Talking About Feelings in English
When you meet somebody for the first time, what are some of the first questions you ask?
‘What’s your name?’ ‘Where are you from?’ ‘What do you do?’ and ‘How are you today?’
Today we’ll look at some responses to that last question, as we talk about the different words associated with feelings and emotions in English. A lot of the British people you meet will probably answer ‘I’m fine’ if you ask them, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be so brief! It’s always good to have more choices.
Here is a table with 10 potential answers to the questions ‘how are you?’ or ‘how are you feeling?’ I’ve divided the table into positive and negative feelings to show the opposites.
