Students have short conversations with teachers

Work in pairs, in groups or individually.

They make a 'Have you ever' question and come and ask a teacher. The teacher gives an expanded answer such as 'No, I haven't been to Nara but I went to Kyoto. It was beautiful'. The teacher then asks the student a similiar question or two. The student should be encouraged to ask the teacher follow up questions or expand on their answer. If they don't have much to say then don't press too hard.

They go back to their desk after the talk. They can use the memo space to wrtite information and the notes space to write two English sentences about the conversation before thinking of a new 'Have you ever' question to ask. The notes can be able to the teacher's answer or about their own.

This can be challenging but its great for those students who really want to talk about something but more structured activities don't allow it.
