Yesterday I opened a HB 7 at my school and she wasn't very talkative, I soon realized that she mostly speaks Spanish but on the contrary also speaks some English. Though a minor laguage barrier I still insisted to get to know her, the only thing was that since she didn't speak to much I was constantly asking her questions to continue the convo. which made it seem like a interview and most of all awkward silences. She giggled to my playful jokes but still wasn't investing. Also when I was talking to her, she was sidetracked by looking at her phone the whole time.
What can I do to get her to invest more and potentially continue a conversation rather then smirk and text on her phone while I'm talking to her?
This also applies to other girls that would do the same
