Direct and Indirect Language

We often soften our words, or use indirect language when talking about sensitive topics such as correcting others’ mistakes, or requesting someone’s time or effort. Learners will strengthen their decision-making skills to determine when it’s best to be honest and direct, and when to choose gentle/indirect words.
