    In teaching conversation successfully, it helps if you are a good conversationalist.

    Here are a few suggestions that work for me.

    Well, first, it's good if you both have similar interests, or something in common to talk about. Second, try to ask open-ended questions, which are questions that cannot be answered with Yes or No. For example,

    A: What kind of movies do you like to watch?
    B: I like to watch action movies.

    Third, be a good listener. One of the roles of a conversation teacher is to provide the student with time to practice. Moreover, people tend to feel more comfortable, not to mention more confident, when they know someone's interested in what they have to say.

    Fourth, people feel satisfied when their needs are met. So if satisfying your students is one of your goals, you need to ask your students questions like (a) what they expect from you as a teacher, (b) what they expect from the lesson as a whole, (c) what they expect of themselves as language learners, and (d) what the want you to teach them in terms of language (e.g. pronunciation, grammar, travel English, Business English, and so on).

    All the best :D

    Chili

    Chile (chili, chilli) is a wonderful word. There are at least three ways to spell it.

    :D
