I'm supposed to be sleeping over at someone's house of whom i barely know and only see every other week at our English tutors place (2 other guys and I go every other week to learn English). The problem is, I'm quite anti-social in the sense that I do not know how to keep a conversation going and it can be quite awkward. I was never like this when I was younger, but now It just feels so much harder >_>. I don't want to just not go because its already been arranged so that I get to know the child better. Also, I'm a 15 year old male if that's relevant. What should I do and how should I go about it?

Take a couple of films or plan to play Xbox or something. Have an activity so that you don't have to make conversation.

Try to find a common ground for conversation first! Both of you do English together so start there. talk about your tutor, or other people that are in your tutor group, sports, video games, technology! what i find helps is current events! simply talking about something thats going on in the news (nothing to deep ahah) can be good ground for starting conversation.
My biggest tip, especially because youre anti social, is try to make yourself relax! If youre super stiff the whole night and anxious it will be impossible for you to actually have a good time! so just chill, converse, watch videos, and try to have some fun - thats what sleepovers are for!
