Join a local ham club or attend some local group meetings. Get to know the locals. It will make it easier to converse with them on the radio. It will also give you something in common to talk about with them.

Listen for some group check-in nets on the radio. Listen and learn so that you know the routine. Many groups or ARES teams have their nets on Sunday evenings.

Just absorb until you get your call sign and can actually talk on the radio.
