This is for my life skills class: four ways to start a conversation with someone
1) Ask an open-ended question. This will help engage conversation and get to the heart of good communication. 2) Talk about current events. Talking about current events and getting their opinion on them will build trust and strengthen blinds. 3) Talk about a previous discussion. By bringing up past discussions, you can further conversations by having previous conversations as a foundation. 4) Introduce yourself, if you haven't already and touch on some of your accomplishments.
