STEP 3 Play “Conversation Catch.”

Standing a few feet apart, take any kind of ball and toss it back and forth like you’re playing a game of catch. Then, start the Conversation Catch game by:

  • First person asks a question of the other person and throws him/her the ball. (Example, “What do you like to do in the summer?”)
  • Second person catches the ball, answers the question, asks the other person a question, then throws the ball.
  • Repeat this game back and forth for a couple of minutes until you can work up to having a conversation without stopping for five minutes.
