Speaking activities are so important in ESL classrooms since students need lots of practice with pronunciation and communicating in English. There are a wide variety of speaking exercises that you can use such as model dialogues, role plays, and interview activities. Using a variety of activities will keep students interested and engaged while also maximizing their practice time. Some activities can be done in pairs, in groups, and even as a class. Your class size may help you decide how best to group your students for speaking activities. Be sure to give students a chance to present material to the class too.
