Two of my daughters are rather shy so the summer before recruitment, I practiced conversations with them at random times. We'd be driving somewhere and I'd toss out, "So, Patty PNM. Why did you decide to major in __?" and wait for them to grab the conversational ball. They would groan but pick up on it and it seemed to help, especially when I'd throw out really random topics.

See if you can get someone to practice with you.
