The art of conversation has long been perfected by the Romeos and Juliets of the day. Lucky for us, we no longer have to dig deep inside ourselves to start a perfectly decent conversation with another person.

However, there are still a good number of people who can't seem to hold up a conversation. That's all going to change now. If you want to learn about the art of conversation and how to easily communicate with anyone, read on!

Tip # 1: Be Natural.

You don't have to pretend to be someone else just to get a good conversation flowing. In fact, pretending to be someone you're not only serves to bring your confident points down.

Aside from the pressure of keeping up pretenses, you're also pressured to create a good first impression. You end up making more mistakes and making a fool of yourself in front of the other person.

But by relaxing and staying true to who you are, you'll have no reason to be nervous anymore. After all, who knows how to act like you better than yourself? Besides, you may not realize it yourself, but there is something special about each one of us.

Tip # 2: Read Up.

Perfecting the art of conversation takes time and effort. One way to do this is by reading up. Reading the paper everyday, for example, feeds your mind. It helps you stay on track of current events-something which has proven itself to be a very effective conversation starter.

Reading widens your knowledge and your vocabulary. It also boosts your confidence because now you feel more equipped to face other people and start a conversation with them.

It would greatly help if you read materials related to the field or topic of interest of the people you'll be meeting. For example, if you know that many of the people attending a certain event speak Spanish, you can learn some common Spanish words and phrases that you may use to talk with them.

Tip # 3: Give and Take.

Remember that the art of conversation is a two-way street. You're not there to listen to all of their woes for an hour. You're not there to talk about your stupid day for an hour either.

Conversation needs participation from both parties. The best way to go about this is to ask the other person something and then relate your own experience to what they tell you. That way, both of you get to talk to each other and learn more about each other as well.

The art of conversation is not difficult. All it takes is an open mind and practice to do it well. Don't let your nervousness affect you. Be as natural as you can be. Read up on the news and learn to share the spotlight with another person. After this, I don't see you having any more communication problems.
