    Most usefull expressions

    In conversation, , there are some words or expressions used while waiting for words or ideas to come ; such as : “...well …” , “ Umm ….” , “ as I said” .
    Please can I have a list of those words and expressions and how they are used.
    To learn a language, some people use some expressions to gain or attract new vocabulary. To make it clear here you have an example:
    If a student can understand only 20 % of what his teacher says. To understand the rest, he has to use some words or expressions or questions such as: “please I didn’t understand this point”, “what does it mean” , “how do you spell that word ?”. Of course, this will push the student to involve in discussions, which are sources of new vocabulary.
    My question is: What are the common expressions that can help students to gain new vocabulary.
    What are the most useful ways to learn English in a short time and efficiently?
    Thank you very much
    yours faithfully

    If a student can understand only 20% of what his teacher says, what should he do?
