Prevent pauses in a conversation with preparation


  1. Make a list of questions to keep the conversation going
    Use the following sample questions: What did you think of…(a book/film/TV show)? Can you recommend a good…(hairdresser/hotel/car service/caterer)? What’s the most important thing in your life? What’s new with your family? Who inspires you the most? How do you spend your free time? 
  2. Pay people compliments
    Tell people what you like about their appearance and about their behavior: I admire your determination/courage/honesty…, etc. 
  3. Share a personal experience
    Think about extraordinary stories you’d like to share with other people. Prepare beforehand and choose an experience that isn’t controversial or negative.
