How to use these materials

It is recommended that you download the ESL discussion questions in PDF format using one of the links above. The best way to encourage classroom interaction is to download and print the discussion questions in the 'pairs' or 'threes' PDF format and then divide the questions by cutting along the dotted lines. This allows students to take turns asking and answering the discussion questions in groups of two or three.

It is advisable to prepare students for using these discussion questions by first introducing them to the topic in an interesting and engaging way. An anecdote, quiz question or a related image or video could all be used to achieve this. Depending on the level, it may also be necessary to pre-teach any challenging vocabulary contained in the discussion questions.
