Speaking the same language

language of interest

I am not talking about language as Language. The language that we all speak, same or different.

I am speaking of the language of interest, between two people or maybe a group.

Okay, let me ask you this first:

Have you ever been in a situation, where you are with an other person, in an awkward silence?

And here’s a situation I recently encountered,

Two people, one I never seen talk so interestingly with anyone, — not bad, i do that all the time —

and then got engaged in a conversation so actively. I figured, the why?

Because they both were speaking the same language, talking about sports. They figured out the language they like to speak, that’s what started the conversation.

Happened to me as well.

Still, its not just the verbal commutation.

The language of interest, two people play a game, soccer, poker or any other.

They are not speaking with words, yet there is a language, language of interest.

That made them engage in a communication, not verbal.

There is a problem, consider being in the first scenario, in that awkward silence.

Now,

How to figure out the common language between two, to start the long conversation?
