Icebreakers and Using Small Talk

This simple powerpoint presentation aims to introduce the idea of breaking the ice in social situations. Students will practice how to start conversations in different situations. Then they will be asked to follow a speed dating format to practice their small talk skills. The S's will talk to each other for 2 minutes (or 3) on a pre-arranged topic. They can stay on topic or change it as suits. Follow the topic or not depending on your students levels.
