Too cheerful class

I love this. If we have a problem with too cheerful students, I think we are doing something pretty amazing:

A: We have learned how to deal with the silence class in the training and being told that sometimes let the class be silent for several seconds is actually a good thing.I would like to learn more strategies on how to deal with a too cheerful class. Sometimes students are not listenning to me, well, they are discussing and studying among small groups, it is a good thing, but sometimes I just want to tell them something really important however I cannot stop them talking. I try to raise my voice but they raise their voices as well. This happens especially in the first several sessions.
