Small talk is a part of American culture, but it has no equivalent in many cultures where talking to strangers is simply not done. However small talk can be useful in helping students adjust to the native-speaking community. Participants will be shown background materials including cultural tips for the students and some oral grammar lessons to help them with the task. Students later report on their findings, and some of these results will be shared as well. Q and A will follow.
