Small talk in English in the USA – Intermediate Level (B2)

Calvin and I discuss how we do small talk in English and in the USA. We do small talk ALL the time in the USA.

Small talk is one of those things you don’t think about until you are in another culture and realize there is a pattern that is common throughout the whole culture/language. We try to break down a few areas of small talk in the USA. Enjoy 🙂

Here are some very common English small talk conversation topics in the USA.

1. Talk about the weather. 

Examples: What a beautiful day! It’s been so rainy lately. It’s a great day to go for a hike.

2. Talk about sports. 

Examples: How about those Packers? What a great game last night! Did you see the game last night? Are you going to watch the game tomorrow?

3. Talk about current events. 

Examples: What do you think about the upcoming elections? Have you seen the new movie that hit theaters?

4. Ask for suggestions: 

Examples: Can you recommend a good cafe nearby? Do you know if there are any Italian restaurants around? Is there a Turkish market in the area?

5. Ask about work: (This is more for people you know or your colleagues)

Examples: How’s your latest project going? What do you have going on at work? What are you working on? Are you going to the company picnic this weekend?
