The words “poll” and “survey” are similar. Both can be nouns or verbs. To “poll” or “survey” people (verb), you ask for their opinions about something, and then you share the answers. Newspapers and TV news shows often report on polls and surveys (noun). For example, “A new poll today showed that 89% of people like chocolate” or “A survey of English learners showed that 75% wish they could practice speaking more often.”
I’d like to know your opinions, so I’m going to have polls sometimes. Please choose your answer and let me know what you think!
