Make More Friends:

How to Start a Conversation with Strangers

How do you make friends with people you have just met? To start speaking to strangers and continue the conversation can be challenging. Apart from bravery, understanding more on the interpersonal communication skills with reference to the English culture definitely helps you achieve the goal.

  • How to open a dialogue with a stranger without oddity

  • How to help convey your meaning with non-verbal expressions
