American Small Talk: The Basics; A (Hopefully) Helpful Video

Hi everybody!  This is a new video of me explaining some of the basics of American style small talk.  The first thing I always recommend to new speakers of English is to relax.  Take a few deep breaths, loosen your shoulders, be easy.  No one will laugh at you.  Then, smile.  In America, a genuine smile invites conversation.  It invites warmth from the other person.  Then plan out in your mind what you want to say and how it should sound.

If you want to practice your English, if you need a conversation partner, if you want English or accent reduction lessons, give me a call @ (732) 807-5424.  My per hour rates are reasonable; you can view them on my website here https://sites.google.com/site/davidberlinesl/.  Just click on the "David Berlin's ESL/Accent Reduction Lessons" drop down in the sidebar and click on "My Rates".

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your English and your accent!

'Til next time,
