In step two you learn useful skills for hopping – to set up for dialogue, to develop listening and question skills. You also get hands-on advice on how to do your bubble-hop in practice. 90 minutes Then you bubble-hop. You meet someone you are curious about with the bubble-hopping skills you have acquired.
