FREE Getting-to-Know Each Other Worksheets

This is the getting to know each other section of the site where you can discover new ways to encourage your students to share more information about themselves with one another or the class as a whole. With 207 worksheets to choose from, you should find something your students will like. Teachers have suggested that many of these worksheets be used in your first class with students but this getting-to-know-you activity is a little different. This worksheet helps students compose and deliver a report about themselves so wait until students feel more comfortable with one another before introducing this activity. Even after a year of class together, students will still be able to think of some new information to share. You might also consider using this as a review after you have covered all the individual questions in other class periods. There are many worksheets in this section that are appropriate for learners of different levels and ages if this one does not fit into your course. .
Being able to introduce yourself is important when meeting new people and since this is a common occurrence it is good to have student practice asking and answering some basic questions such as the ones on the worksheets in this section. Students will have to have a good grasp of the required vocabulary before starting to learn these sentence structures. Once students have mastered the answers, introduce the question forms and allow students to practice using interview activities and model dialogues.
