外国人见面以后都聊什么呢？ 在聊正事之前，都怎么寒暄呢？什么可以聊？什么不能聊？ 今天我们来一起看一看：非正式场合的交际用语。
How are you?
Good! what about you?
I am just OK, I had a nightmare last night...
问候之后便是small talk， 最安全、最常用的small talk就是天气和交通， 几乎每天都用。
It is freezing outside, isn't it?
Yes, I even can't feel my nose!
The temperature is -10, but it feels like -20!
How was your traffic today?
It was so bad! It took me 1 hour to be here, usually I only need 30 minutes!
How about you?
I am OK, Though there was a lot of traffic on the highway, I only spent 20 minutes on the road.
Yeah, that's pretty good.
不适合small talk 的话题：
或者国人常问的 吃了么？上哪儿去啊？ 等问题，别人会感到很奇怪，似乎你在窥探他们隐私。
Small talk 之后就可以进行进一步的沟通了
