This study was carried out to identify better teaching methods in improvised conversation. Instructions about improvised conversation in English and the speaking test were provided to 2nd graders. According to the data analysis based on the test, the important things to activate conversations are the following: generating ideas, turn-taking, and the quantity and quality of questions. The author suggests that it is important to teach information flow in conversation, the use of gestures to show changes in turn-taking, and how to ask appropriate questions.
