My searches are getting me far too general results. What I'm looking for is some website that has a list of free-talking topics for ADULTS with questions for each topic. I used to have access to a book with 40, or so, discussion topics with about 25 or 30 questions for each topic. It made it much easier to lead a class. Does anyone know of any convenient sites?

that's a great site kangnamdragon.

it's not a website, but cambridge publishes conversation books for intermediate and advanced levels called Discussions A-Z.
i have received overwhelmingly positive responses from my students when using the topics and questions in these books.

Yea, but no answers!


Those questions look really good.

You could do warm-ups with them.

Give the students copies of the questions. Copy and paste 'em to Word. Give 'em space to right answers.

Do a few for each class.

I'm gonna try a few tomorrow for my adults.


Zed:

Have you got that Word Up board game yet? That's full of questions and they can play a game at the same time.

No, I've never heard of it. Is it working well in your classes? What age groups do you use it for?

yes. that site IS great


the korean times or herald has something like 'dear annie' or the sort, a gossip thing with some really weird stuff...


no questions or answers but...............................................

my dog could form questions and answers from a short passage... good thing about it is that there are 3 or 4 new topics everyday....

kinda did well for me with an adult class that i had when i first came here
