I have just begun teaching a Conversational English class to adults from many countries. The goal is to sit and chat, so that each person will be practicing their English skills, and the entire group will learn from each person's expressions and conversation. Any help, ideas, parts of this website that might help?

Try downloading the Let's Talk About Series from the site. It worked wonders for my adults.
I find that if my students know more words then conversations come easier. It also gives the students something to talk about since they learn more with group effort.
Hope it helps.

Is there any way to incorporate tv shows? Perhaps that could always be a good icebreaker . . .

If you want to try and learn through video this website is pretty good. Study the videos word by word at your own pace and have a conversation after it.

I would like to recommend my yt channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-t6zJOpz_UU&list=PLvaMp63fxIRzpeHryABFm6kzxEAoOuRhi where I intend to study English online. Focus will be on vocabulary and everyday spoken language plus I'm going to make use of the lastest visual aids. Be sure to check the site, my dear friends and follow me. You may also show it to your students. Thank you so much and all the best!

I have 7 years experiences of teaching Thai as a second language, what would help you is making some quizzes in small flahcards and let them take each of them (randomly) let them to ask anybody in the class. This way will help them speak and I think it's fun :)

Photos can be useful.
Use wedding and family photos and encourage the students to ask questions.
Who? When? Where?
Of course you don't need to use personal photos, but some students might like to bring and share a photo of their own.
Magazines provide material for discussion, as do newspaper articles.
Discuss and if possible share some food from each srtudent's country.
