List of Conversation Topics
One of the most frustrating things I have ever experienced around a girl, is if I and her run out of things to talk about. Since you found this post I assume you know what I’m talking about, and maybe you are interested in learning how to avoid awkward silence. I’m thinking about the teeth pooling moments where the awkward silence just takes over the situation, you are just sitting their smiling while desperately in your mind scrambling for something just mildly interesting say, but you just can think of anything, you mind is a total black out, you can’t even remember your own name at this point. Finally you hear yourself saying something completely uninteresting, like: “sooo.. do you come here often”, she says “no its my first time!” It’s a horrible horrible situation to be in, I have thus decided to make this cheat sheet of interesting conversation topics to ensure, that you will never run out of things to say again. Talk about Past Experiences: Talk about Current Experience:

‎Edpuzzle on the App Store Honestly, this app I would rather do than do class work with text books and stuff. But, especially on a student’s grade, this app should be more careful with their bugs and glitches because it is risking someone’s grade. There’s bugs, like you can’t answer a question or something and no matter how long you refresh it it won’t work which makes it frustrating and puts a lot of stress, especially when the assignment is due. Another is the multi choice questions. Thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback – whenever you experience a technical issue, have your teacher contact us and we'll look into it ASAP!

The Teacher's Corner - Lesson Plans, Worksheets and Activities Have something done Take a look at these two sentences. What is the difference in meaning between them? 'I cut my hair.' 'I have my hair cut.' 'I cut my hair' means that I do it myself.'I have my hair cut means someone cuts my hair for me (in this case it's probably a hairdresser). We use have something done to mean another person does a service for us. The grammar for this is pretty simple: Have + object + past participle Let's take a look at a few more examples: 'We didn't want to cook so we had a pizza delivered.'' We can also use 'get' instead of 'had' and the meaning stays the same. 'We didn't want to cook so we got a pizza delivered.' future 'I had my watch fixed' tells us about the past. 'Going to' tells us about a future plan that has already been made. We use 'will' for something that has just been decided: I've just noticed how dirty my suit is. questions Imagine that you like your friend's new haircut; you could ask her: 'Where did you have / get your hair cut?' 'Where can I have / get my hair cut?' future

26 Fresh ESL Conversation Starters to Get Students Talking! | Jennifer Teacher 10 Oct I love teaching conversation in the ESL classroom. Part of it must be that because the students able to “converse” in English are better able to demonstrate their personalities, preferences, thoughts… and therefore, I get to know them better. Often it is simply hilarious to see the range of answers students feel free to share in a comfortable environment. If you’re a conversation teacher in an English as a Second Language classroom, there may be times when you feel as though you want fresh ideas, a change in routine or some way to remain slightly unpredictable so your students remain curious as to what tricks you have up your sleeves. Always remember to keep in mind your students’ unique personalities and language learning journey, and never underestimate how engaged they can become with the right activity! Here is a list of 26 fresh ESL Conversation Starters to move your class! Enjoy! Like this: Like Loading... Tags: conversation, Lesson Planning, speaking
