I'm starting a course and our teacher gives us cards with a bit of information about each student in the class, maybe to mingle the group. Then I said the following to explain a friend what was going on:
"The teacher gives you conversation starters to mingle with people you don't know but whom you are going to spend some time with".
Is that phrase grammatically correct? It seems to me that it does, but no body understand me, and this time I'm sure it was not caused by my pronunciation.
