Communicating with new people can be tricky. Whether it’s purely for a social engagement, or the survival of your business depends on it, the art of conversation and understanding differences in language doesn’t always come so easy to all of us. If you’re anything like me, it will always involve getting out of your comfort zone; a happy place I only leave when there are no other options.

Fortunately for you and I, there are people who understand these problems and have sought to develop conversation tools to help in a variety of different situations, taking you from Shy Sarah to Social-Butterfly Betty, possibly even helping you drive your business across international borders with ease.

For example, Conversation Aid is an all encompassing self-development website. It is designed to help you overcome shyness and nervousness in social situations, improve your conversation skills and confidence and help to develop your sense of humor.
