My List of Favorite Questions

If you are looking for a list of favorite questions to have a fun conversation with your friends or classmates, you have come to the right place.

Favorite questions are a good idea when you are trying to meet someone and you don’t know where to start.

In this post, you will find tips and ideas to have an interesting conversation around your favorite questions

List of Favorite Questions: Classroom Use

This list of favorite questions can also be used to promote interaction and maximize student talking time.

Using conversation questions in the ESL Classroom can impact positively your students.

To use conversation questions, I would recommend:

  • Sending this list to students at least two weeks in advance so they can get ready.
  • Print these questions and cut them into strips.
  • Put all of the strips with the questions in a plastic or paper bag.
  • Ask students to make small groups of five to six people.
  • One students grabs a question from the bag, picks a member of the group and direct the question to him or her.
  • Students answer the questions and welcome follow-up questions from classmates.

It is not important to finish all questions in the bag, Interaction is the main goal and some questions can generate more conversation than others.
