Pair Dialogue Practice for ESL students

        
Age Group: All Ages
Subject: Dialogues
Goal of Lesson: Students practice a dialogue pattern
Time Needed: 10-15 minutes
Materials Needed: none

Separate your students into pairs.

 

Each pair should have a list of questions to ask their classmate.

 

The teacher can write the questions or key words to questions on the whiteboard. The student asking the questions may them use them as a prompt.

 

After the student asks the question, the other student must answer with a correct pattern.

 

AFTER all the questions have been asked, the two students change roles.

 

After one round, the teacher can have the students ask different variations of questions. For example, they could change the subjects, tense, or vocabulary in the question. The answers would then be different.

 

ALSO, teachers can change up the pair partners for each round of questions and answers.
