For many people, the idea of walking into a room full of strangers and trying to socialise with them can be terrifying, especially if you have to use a foreign language. The barriers to ‘breaking the ice’ in a situation like this are just as much psychological as linguistic, which is why this lesson aims to get students thinking about the situation (through a quiz-based discussion and jigsaw reading) as much as speaking and practicing the skill of starting conversations with strangers.

Breaking the Ice is a 1938 American film directed by Edward F. Cline starring child star Bobby Breen . A young Mennonite boy runs away from home to earn money for his widowed mother. [2] [3] [4] [5]

Upon his return home, he is greeted with joy from everyone except for William, who insists on the return of his twenty dollars. Tommy traces the money back in his mind, and realizes that it fell into one of the newspapers Mr. Terwilliger used to stuff an antique chair. The two of them then run around the country in order to seek the chair, and find the twenty dollars. Finally, they locate the chair, and bring the twenty dollars back home. With all debts cleared, Tommy and Martha can finally go home to Goshen where they run the farm with Henry and Reuben Johnson.

An earlier version of this article referred incompletely to the cost of attending “Breaking Ice: The Battle of the Carmens.” Attendees at Riverbank State Park must pay the rink’s regular admission fee, although the program itself is free there. There is no charge at Bryant Park.
