Do you guys intentionally try to use icebreakers/break the ice before starting a conversation or is this more of an American thing? What do you make them about?

If you just want an answer, then I would say that I do because sometimes you want to get to know someone a little bit (at least try to) so that you get some idea of who you're talking to (eg. their work). They can also be used just to start a conversation so things don't feel awkward (eg. weather).

Q: How do you distinguish whether to use "the" and "a" ?
A: "The" is used to refer to specific nouns, while "a" or "an" is used to refer non-specific nouns.

"I will watch the movie", this means I will watch one specific movie.
If it's "I will watch a movie", that means I haven't decided which movie will I watch, it could be any movie

Another example,

Q: Do you say "tv series" or "tv programs" or "shows" or "dramas"?

Are they the same? What do people really use these days?
A: All of the above would be considered shows—or TV series because they all have (or are planned to have) multiple seasons. What to call each one specifically is getting into semantics, but I’ll try to define each one:

I would call friends a “sitcom” which is a type of comedy show.

Dramas tend be considered more serious than funny in tone, so I would consider Mandalorian a drama.

Emily in Paris is an example of a “comedy-drama” which has both funny and serious moments.

Again, nobody will bat an eye if you simply call them “shows.”
