Teaching Tuesday Tips 4-1-14 ESL Conversation Ideas

ESL Conversation Ideas:

Have a party! Have student pretend they are at a party where they must:

– Introduce themselves
– One thing about themselves that people may not know

Start this activity by brainstorming interesting questions that they can ask. This is a good opportunity to discuss ideas about small talk and appropriate/inappropriate conversation topics as these are often culturally-defined.

Give them a few minutes to walk around the room and meet as many people as possible.
