Joining in a conversation

Observing the conversation, deciding when to join, saying something relevant to the conversation.

To join a conversation, children have to learn how to look at the people having the conversation and smile, wait for the people to stop talking, talk about something that is similar to what the group is talking about and, if ignored, walk away and do something else.

Two of your friends are talking about the movie they saw last night.

Wait until its a good time to join in the conversation, approach your friends, join the conversation and find something relevant to say about the movie ‘Oh, I have seen it too’ or ask ‘How was the movie?’.
