Lots of students have asked me "How do I do small talk?, It's not part of our culture, so we just start doing business straightaway without any chat!" So, to help, I've made a video outlining lots of small talk examples. To be honest though, I don't really see why people have a problem with small talk, because everyone can talk to a friend about sport, the weather, travel etc. All you have to do is forget that you are in a business environment for a moment and talk to the other person as if they were your friend. Simple! However, if you want to be a bit more scientific about it, in the instructional video below, you can see:
- A new easy-to-remember method that will help improve your Business English small talk skills forever.
- 16 common small talk example questions and appropriate responses
- A long 2-way small talk conversation, so that you can see the small talk method in action
