English Language Game: Short Answers



Short answers. In English, we usually don't use Yes or No only 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."

Learn and practice these in context with this interactive online English language game. You'll see that 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.
