http://englishsl.com/speaking-skills-small-talk.php

I left a few easter eggs there. Who can find the grammar mistakes or spot the idioms?

Great - all fixed... Odd, I remember correcting some of those, but I guess I never saved them ;)

Excellent! all fixed and I spotted a few others too ;)

staycation is not a word, but slang. I should use quotes on it.

That's great!

Poor Empire penguins, they have a rubbish life. Imagine being stuck out in the freezing weather where there is no sun huddled around with a bunch of dudes to keep warm while your girlfriend is off feasting in the ocean. And if you think that is great, the women are stuck in the freezing cold waters. Sounds like a bad deal to me...

I think the topic about small talk is great.
I have some difficult with how to start a small talk, so I think it will help me a lot. Now, I just need more time to study it.
