In this post, you will learn how to be an active participant in a conversation with native English speaker.[If your English isn’t advanced yet]

Probably many of you were in the following situation: You are out with a native English speakers (coworkers of acquaintances). The whole group is talking about a certain topic and you either don’t understand the words or you are not familiar with a topic. You’ve got 2 options: sit modestly and wait until somebody notices you or lead a conversation into areas familiar to you.  If you chose to be active you will need to start a whole new conversational topic.  This video explains how to do it.


Summary
1. lead a conversation with questions into areas familiar to you
2. prepare interesting questions and also your answers to them beforehand ( or see my books for examples)
3. rehearse them before you are going to a social gathering.

[Stayed tuned. In my next post I’ll give you examples]
