How can I build conversational skills?
I'm a first year undergrad student, and I'm wondering on how I can build my confidence and conversational skills in general. I will probably start networking soon and also hope to talk to more people (namely, women) in college. Unfortunately, this pandemic has messed my college experience up socially. How do you guys build these skills? What's the best way to practice conversations? I know the common answer will probably be "just put yourself out there," but I'd like some more specificity. What kinds of uncomfortable situations should I force myself into so I can better communicate with women and professionals?
