Indirect questions

Here’s yet another one of those kitsch videos that I have the awful habit of producing every now and then. This one’s for indirect questions. As a reminder, indrect questions are the type of questions we ask when we don’t want to be too direct; maybe because we don’t know the person very well, or simply because we’re asking for personal details.

Here’s an example:

DIRECT: Where do you live? > DIRECT: Can/Could you tell me where you live?
