New 6-minute English: Small Talk

Good day everyone. Here's a new Six Minute English Quiz. It's short and sweet. It's about how to survive at a party where you know no one. 

No problem! Here are a few questions:

Question 1 (Official): When do babies usually start talking? Is it when they are:

(a) 9 months; (b) 16 months: (c) 18 months 

2. What expression does party expert Liz Brewer use to describe the act of attempting to start a conversation with someone you don't know at a party? "....."

3. What do you do if you can't remember the name of the person you're talking to? " ... "

4. Liz Brewer says, "You have to interact with people in a [___] way." (one word)

Now listen to the programme. When you have finished, post your answers on the Tag Board or in a Comment.

I'll be back soon!
Yours,
Mike.
