Learning to speak a new language is definitely a challenge. It’s very difficult for your students to do if they don’t practice on a regular basis. Luckily, you need to look no further because BusyTeacher.org has the tools to help your students practice their speaking - and want to do it, too! Let’s face it, students aren’t always jumping for joy at the opportunity to speak a language they aren’t 100 percent comfortable with. Students can be hesitant to speak for a wide variety of reasons - fear of mistakes, peer pressure, or lack of self-confidence are some of the main factors. BusyTeacher.org has 916 speaking worksheets to help you plan effective speaking lessons, which will get your students to break through their shyness and start talking!
These worksheets are great to use for your lessons because they come in many different styles and formats. Some include flashcards, PowerPoint presentations, and games that you can include in your lesson and help your students increase their speaking ability with interesting, educational, and fun activities. Many of our speaking worksheets can be used in a variety of different ways. Some can be used to inspire topics of discussion, enabling you to hold an open forum with your students, so they can express their ideas. Some are grammar and vocabulary-ased, and can help your students learn new words while using grammar points. Some are games that spark creativity and activity in the classroom - for example, some worksheets are for mingling activities, where students walk around and have to speak about something with others – for example, about their hobbies. Other worksheets are for role play, and get students to take on the roles of an employer and an interviewee. Some worksheets aren’t for every level - some are specifically for kids, some for teenagers, and some for adults.
