English Language Game: Short Answers

Play this English Language Game and practice some typical short answers we use in English.

An interactive online English Language Game (ESL) to practice short answers in context.

In English we usually don't use only Yes or No as an answer to a question. Saying just Yes or No is often not considered polite.

Instead, we use "short answers," such as "Yes, I do," "No, you can't," "Yes, he is," "No, it doesn't."

You'll see that many short answers in English follow a pattern that you can easily understand. At the same time, practice your listening comprehension and pronunciation by repeating them after the speaker.
