All you need to do is choose the words you have to say. A big no for an offensive topic. Try to know the interest of the person you are talking to. If you do not have any idea on what he/she is talking about, dont be afraid to ask. asking question will make the conversation more alive.. Most succesful interactions/conversation begins with questions.

the first word you need to say is "hi" then after the you will continuously ask some common question and then get to know each other, so it will give a flow to the topic you will be discuss.

To be successful in your career and life, you must start to train the skill with a sense of urgency. Just dive in the water, find whoever around to practice. Choose topics of common interest, say, the latest news, sports, and do not fear making fool of yourself. As long as you speak sincerely and friendly, little chance to be mistreated.

well dont be afraid to be embarrassed! its not something to be afraid of! be pround embrace it and you'll find that discussion comes a lot easier if you accept the fact that you may be embarrassed and just go with the flow. knowing also the fact that they may be just as embarrassed as you are about talking to someone they dont know. just keep babbling on about something random and soon enough you'll find something you both like or dont like and can agree upon either way! so just laugh at life! dont let it laugh at you! =} hope i could shed some light!
