Written Conversation Vs. Oral Conversation

A “good” conversation consist of various characteristics to make it a good conversation. A good conversation must include: it should be intellectual or about a topic you enjoy and know enough about to talk about it, you must make eye contact to whom you are speaking with, ask questions to give the other person in the conversation the opportunity to talk and give their opinion on the topic, be sure to give your input without arguing, be a good listener, tell personal experiences to enhance your credibility about the topic of discussion, and always know when the conversation is ended instead of awkwardly leaving at the wrong time. By that I mean to get all your points out and let the person you’re talking with get all their points out, discuss a little and then know when you have ended and should move onto another conversation. The most important characteristics of a “good” conversation would have to be eye contact and being a good listener. No one likes when your only able to just talk and don’t give them the chance to talk about anything on the topic.
When carrying out a meaningful conversation you should be discussing a topic that you are truly passionate about and are able to give a worthy input on it. A meaningful conversation can be about anything, it just depends on how much the topic means to you and how much you know about it and how much of the information you know that is true.
There are several major differences between written conversations and oral conversations. For one, written conversations are of course written down and oral conversations are spoken at that moment in time. Written conversation is permanent, you’re able to think about it more before you make it permanent, more formal, it’s more reliable because it is thought out, and it gives the writer/speaker to make sure they are getting everything they need to say out and say it the right way. Oral Conversations contain many mistakes, once it’s out there it’s out there forever and you can’t change what you said like you can on paper, informal, more personal, have to make eye contact, and interact with other speaker to make it a conversation. When moving between a written conversation and an oral conversation you could be reading a script of a conversation between various people and then have a conversation about the script orally.
