Most Useful English Expressions to Start a Conversation

Conversations can open up a whole new universe of opportunities...for relationships, for business, for anything and everything.  Unfortunately, for some people, starting a conversation is a little difficult, especially when the conversation should be in English and one is not a native speaker of the said language.  Hopefully, the suggested expressions below will help them easily begin a conversation in English.


Anytime, anywhere with anyone:
  • Hi!/Hello!
  • Good morning/afternoon/night/day!
With strangers:
  • Nice weather we have today; don't you think so?
  • So, do you come here often?
  • Excuse me.  You look very familiar.  Have we met somewhere before?
  • Excuse me.  Can you tell me what time it is?
With acquaintances/friends:
  • Hey! It's been quite some time.
  • How are you? (or similar expressions)
  • Looking good!/You look great!
  • What a pleasant surprise! I didn't expect to see you here.
Of course, the expressions mentioned are only the most commonly used.  You may revise them  depending on the situation you are in. Just add whatever details you think may be helpful.
