ESL Speaking Skills: Conversation Questions


Practice is progress! To speak English or any foreign language confidently, there’s no two ways about it, you have to speak it. A lot!

Click on a topic for a list of conversation questions you can use in class, a language exchange or for self-study.

I really encourage you to ALSO use the questions for writing practice. It’s a fast and effective way to become aware of the vocabulary you are lacking or the grammar structures that are still rather wishy-washy. What’s more you don’t have the pressure of someone waiting for your answer!!

Don’t be afraid to look up words or expressions you don’t know, as this is a powerful way to expand your vocabulary skills.
