All too often, teachers start off the lesson by saying, ‘Turn to page 65…’ It’s important to get the students warmed up and in the mood for English with a short activity, and what better way than giving them a discussion question to get their teeth into. Encourage them to be good conversationalists! There are 100 questions here, and they include easy and advanced topics. Some of them could be answered in one word or, if the mood takes everyone, could be an hour-long discussion. However, for most of the questions here, three to five minutes is recommended, plus another minute or two for the teacher to do a round-up. The questions here are suited to discussions in pairs or groups.
