Small Talk - How to Start a Conversation - Tips and Tricks (animated)
Do you like or enjoy my videos? Then consider buying me a coffee: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/uQKkXCF6B Small Talk - How to Start a Conversation - Tips and Tricks (animated) Do you know someone who can strike up a conversation with everybody they meet? Their conversations look effortless, they often get free drinks at the bar, and they make best friends any time they go out. How do these people do it? Are they some type of social mutants? Or are they just “naturals” when it comes to talking to people? They may be gifted, but they don’t have some coveted secret. Instead, they’ve just mastered the art of small talk. Small talk is the base of a conversation. Never forget conversation is a ladder and you can't just leap-frog up the conversation. You need small talk to climb the ladder and warm people up with it. A few examples how to transform closed-ended questions to open-ended: Would you like vanilla ice cream? What is your favorite flavor of ice cream and why? When is your birthday? When is your birthday and how do you like to celebrate? Where did you go to college? What do you feel was most beneficial about your college experience?

Business meeting & conference SMALL TALK – How to avoid that awkward moment!
Do you get nervous in social situations? In this lesson, I'll teach you expressions you can use to master small talk and have meaningful conversations while presenting a professional image. While you can use these expressions in many business and academic situations, this lesson is focused on starting conversations when you are at a conference. I share many good small talk topics that are appropriate in this context. You will learn how to talk about what you have learned at the conference and how to express your opinion about the experience, including the conference venue and speakers. This is a great lesson to watch to prepare yourself for attending a work- or school-related conference. My goal in this lesson is to help you feel confident and make the right impressions with the people you meet. For more practice, take the quiz at http://www.engvid.com/business-meeting-conference-small-talk/ . Good luck! TRANSCRIPT Hi, everyone. I'm Jade. What we're talking about today is conference talk. So, we've got "Conference Small Talk", and also more generally about talking about the thing that you're there for. The reason I made this lesson is because, hopefully, I want you to learn how to avoid that awkward moment when you're like standing outside a conference room or somewhere, or maybe it's a break, you could be by yourself, and you're just standing there, like: "What am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to say something? Am I supposed to talk to someone?" And maybe you start to pretend that you're busy, get your phone out or something. So, anyway, this will save you in your awkward moment situation. So, the small talk part, that's where I'm imagining you're... You're waiting for something to happen. You're waiting for the next talk, or there's a break, or there's some kind of interlude where you're not doing something. Here are some conversational starters that you could... That you could have. You could say to someone: "Are you presenting a paper here?" That would be like an academic kind of conference. Or you could say: "Are you a speaker here?" If they look like they are. Or you could be more general. You could say: "Is this your first time in __________?" Blah, blah, blah place? A lot of the time these kind of conference events, people come... Come there from all... You know, all different places, so it could be any place, really. Couldn't it? But let's say it's in Amsterdam. "Is this your first time in Amsterdam?" And then you can generally talk about Amsterdam, and how lovely it is, and how nice it is to ride bicycles all the time. Perhaps you kind of know each other; you've met before. In which case, you can ask them how they're getting on with their work. So: "getting on"-I'm going to use a pen again-means progressing... Is the formal verb for "get on". "How are you getting on with your research?" Or: "How are you getting on with your project?" Or: "How are you getting on at work?" You've met before, but this could get your... Your... This could help you catch up with each other. What if you want to...? Want to be friends and you want to make friends at the conference? What can you say? You can say: "So, are you attending the welcome drinks tonight?" Because you want them to say: "Sure I am. Let's go together." You want them to say something like that, maybe. Or if you're not sure yet if you want to hang out later, you could say: "Where are you based?" So, the place where you're based means the place where you... Where you work. So, I'm based in Dubai at the moment. So, you know, this one I'm thinking it's more like if you're all part of the same bigger company, but you have different offices in different places. Perhaps you just want to know where they're based. Moving on from general small talk, because not everybody likes to do small talk, we've got some talk about the talk, now. So: "What did you think of the last talk?" And I've got some suggestions for you to sound very clever and informed, like this guy. So you could say: "Yes, I thought it... It raised some interesting questions." What that means is it was a kind of talk that made you think and consider new things, and you know, got some... Got some ideas, and some brain connections flowing, there. Or perhaps you could say: "Well, it provoked a fierce debate." A fierce debate would be when people are very much disagreeing with each other about what was said, and there's not much agreement about it. Whereas: "It generated a lively discussion", doesn't have the opposition or against each other feeling of a fierce debate. A lively discussion is like in... On the enjoyable side of things, talking about things, and, you know, sharing different opinions, but not so much in confrontation. Or you might say, as you're a clever person: "It challenged the status quo." The status quo is the established way of doing things. So, this paper may have been so, so evolutionary that it challenges the status quo.

Small talk is a key to great communication and these small talk tips will help you with breaking the ice. Small talk takes practice and the more you practice the better you will get. These 4 conversation starters will help you feel comfortable the next time you decide to engage in a little small talk. Aaron Marino of alpha m. says that small talk is the key to managing the act of conversing with new people and a critical component of interaction. We need small talk. It's like boxing- you start by feeling him / her out. It's a dance, not knocking someone out. Small talk is peppering them with punches. Four Favorite Conversation Starters 1. "When you're not working, what do you like doing?" - hobbies (passion) are something that people can talk about all day long and they get excited doing it. Conversation will get rolling, and eventually they reciprocate the question. 2. "How's your day going?" - hopefully they elaborate more than 'fine'. If not, go to #3. 3. "You have any plans this weekend?" - if they haven't engaged at this point, this person 'sucks' and find someone else. 4. Lead with a compliment; however, the only appropriate aspect to compliment is something that they're wearing otherwise it could be taken the wrong way!

7 Greatest Conversation Starters That Actually Work
Being a great conversationalist can be challenging. I have struggled with it myself prior to meeting Dorian, and the absolute hardest part and often overlooked is the way to get INTO a conversation in the first place. So I asked Dorian (the best conversationalist I've ever met) to join me to do a video about the 7 greatest conversation starters that actually work - which have been battle-tested by myself and Dorian for years now. What drives me nuts about the other advice I see in articles and videos is that you'd never walk up to someone out of the blue and ask some stupid question like: "What's happening?" - you already know exactly what's happening 'cus you're at the same f#$ckin place! I can't stand to see advice like this because I have struggled with how to start conversations myself and those type of small talk tips and tricks are the furthest from helpful. http://awest.me/7starters for a companion article to this video. http://AshleyWeston.com for more about me, what I do as a Celebrity Menswear Stylist, and other men's lifestyle related articles and videos. __________________________________ FREE MEN'S STYLE EBOOKS To download my free ebooks click here → http://awest.me/ebooks __________________________________ SOCIAL MEDIA ● Instagram → http://instagram.com/ashleypweston ● Snapchat → https://www.snapchat.com/add/ashleypweston ● Twitter → http://twitter.com/ashleypweston ● Facebook → http://facebook.com/ashleywestonstylist ● Pinterest → https://www.pinterest.com/ashleypweston __________________________________ HAVE QUESTIONS?

Joey: I can’t believe they were taken over by another big chain. I hope the old owners weren’t strong-armed. Tony: Me too. It seems all of the great little hole-in-the-wall places are disappearing. Joey: I agree. And the big ones don’t help out the local economy at all, do they? They put all the mom-and-pop shops out of business. There are barely any family run businesses anywhere anymore. Tony: Yes, nobody can compete with them. They buy in bulk and sell at basement prices. Corporate America is really swallowing up all the little fish in the sea. Joey: They sure are. There are a lot of advantages to one-stop shopping, but I do miss the friendliness of the small places. No pun intended. Tony: (Laugh)I know what you mean. Not having to run around town to pick stuff up here and there is nice. On the other hand no one remembers your name in the massive shopping complexes everywhere. Joey: I’ve also heard that the employees aren’t treated very well at the big places either. They receive almost no benefits, low wages and terrible working conditions with no vacation time. Tony: Hopefully the government will step in and do something about it. That’s the only way the little guys stand a chance. Joey: Cheers to the little guys. Let’s get out of here and find a hole in the wall. Tony: Cheers! I’m with you.

How To Skip the Small Talk and Connect With Anyone | Kalina Silverman | TEDxWestminsterCollege
Kalina Silverman wanted to see what could happen if she approached strangers and skipped the small talk to have more meaningful conversations with them instead. She made a video documenting the experience. The stories she heard and the connections she made proved that there's power in taking the time to stop and ask people to reflect on the questions that truly matter in life. Since then, she has continued to work on expanding Big Talk into a movement that inspires and enables people to connect with one another on a deeper level.

How to make a good small talk in English ? English Lesson
How to make a good small talk? English Lesson Take the test : http://www.learnex.in/how-to-make-a-small-talk-english-lesson-esl In most English-speaking countries, it is normal and necessary to make "small talk" in certain situations. Small talk is a casual form of conversation that "breaks the ice" or fills an awkward silence between people. Even though you may feel shy using your second language, it is sometimes considered rude to say nothing. Just as there are certain times when small talk is appropriate, there are also certain topics that people often discuss during these moments. Watch the lesson for better understanding of small talk. The hardest part about making small talk is knowing how to start a conversation. Review the conversation starters in the video and practise them with a friend. Finally, take the time to see how much you have learned about small talk by taking the test at the end of the video. And remember, in an English-speaking environment it is often better to make a few mistakes than to say nothing at all!

What to say at your job interview (all my BEST phrases and tips!)
All my best advice on what to say at your job interview. I will tell you how to answer the most common job interview questions. I’ll give you the grammatical structures to use when answering questions about your work experience, and also share with you vocabulary and phrases that will impress your interviewer. I recommend you prepare for your job interview by learning phrases you can repeat in your interview and also by practising your answers to these common questions. Get a friend to ask you the questions and make sure that you answer them in English! You can follow my advice about how to answer job interview questions whether you are looking for a job in an English-speaking country or you are being interviewed in English for a job in your home country. Good luck with your interview – I wish you success! If you want more help, watch my video on how to write your CV. Remember: there is no 'try'! Once you've finished the lesson, take the quiz here: http:/www.engvid.com/what-to-say-at-your-job-interview TRANSCRIPT Hi, everyone. I'm Jade. What we're talking about today is job interview English. So, in this lesson, I'm going to give you some phrases that you can use in a job interview, and I'll also be giving you... We'll also be looking at what grammar you should be using to answer common job interview questions. So I'm going to break it down so you know what to expect when you have that job interview in English, maybe for the first time, or maybe you've already had a couple of interviews in English but you just want to improve your performance. So let's start by talking about before the interview. So when you get there, there's always, like, that bit of small talk. Maybe you find it awkward, maybe you're a pro at small talk, but I thought I'd just give you some phrases so that you've got something to say, at least. So, when you get there, it's polite to say something like: "Thanks for inviting me to interview." If you feel like initiating small talk, you could say something like: "Is the position based in this office?" or "building", wherever you are. You might also want to say: "Oh, how many people work here?" Just sort of general things, nothing personal going on there. Or you might make an observation about what you see about the building or the workplace. You could say: "The offices are impressive." Now, clearly, if the building isn't very nice, and there isn't anything remarkable about it, then I probably wouldn't say something like this. It's better to make no observation than say one that's not true, or one that sounds a bit strange because the place is a real dump. You don't want to say it's great in your phrase. But maybe the area's nice, so then you could say: "What a great location!" This is an exclamation. You say it with some kind of enthusiasm. Or you might say, as you're walking to the interview room: "Ah, I see you have an open plan office." That means where everybody works together in the same room. Or you might say: "I see you have a staff canteen." That's where you get your food. Okay? So, all suggestions for general small talk. The interviewer may, however, initiate small talk with you, in which case, general things they like to talk about in England... Our... Our favourite topics of small talk are the weather, so you could say something like: "It's chilly today." That means it's a bit cold. Or mild. "Mild" is... "Mild" is when the weather is better than you would expect for that time of year. So if it's winter and it's mild, it's not as cold as you would expect it to be. Yep. So we love to talk about the weather, you know that about British people. Did you also know we like to talk about the traffic or the tube delays and things like that? So, perhaps they'll say: "How was the traffic? How was your journey here?" You can tell them about your journey. Say: -"Oh, it wasn't bad." -"How was your journey?" -"Not bad." That means it was okay. Or you could say: "It didn't take me too long." It didn't take me too long. Now, just a tip: You don't want to say: "It was a nightmare; it took me hours", because they'll probably want to employ someone who can get to the job easily.

Dinner Etiquette: Conversation Guide
Formal Dining: Conversation Guide - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Conversation at the dinner table is very important, and there are many topics that you cannot speak about so, we will talk about those first. I recommend that you do not talk about politics, religion, death, bereavement, or anything that is too spicy. That leaves books, art, theater, culture and travel. So, you want to be able to ask open-ended questions. So you are going to look at the person that you are addressing, and you might say something like, "Mary, the last time we met you were just leaving for Spain. Tell me a bit about the highlights of your trip." And then you would want to bring in other people to the conversation, as well. Conversation is like a game of volleyball. You hit the ball over the net to the other person, and they hit it back to you. And you want to always ask a kind of question that is going to require more than a one word answer, such as "Yes" or "No." So that opens up the doors of conversation. While you are at a dinner party, you have a responsibility to several guests, and that is going to include the person directly in front of you, and the person to your right, and the person to your left. If it is a small table of six, then you could actually interact with everyone. A very large banquet table, and you are back to only being responsible interacting with the person across from you and the person at either side of you. Your responsibility is to add value to the meal with interesting and intellectual conversation. So when I am looking at this person, and I want to be very interested and indicate that with my body language, I am going to nod at them and say, "Fascinating! Tell me more." Or, "You know when I was in Italy last year, I experienced something similar. How did you end up handling that situation?" Now, I am speaking to this person; however, we have other guests as well, so I might catch someone's eye, see that they are very interested, and then I will say, "John, I see that you want to add some comments to the Italy experience," and then that would include them as well. So, it is looking, it is nodding of the head -- "Fascinating! Tell me more."
