Preparing Questions and Anwers

First days in class seem fine and full of energy. Yet there are some students who still look worried and in a process of putting themselves together in class and try to fit in. In such circumstances there are not expected to make up a tricky and complex conversation. They are still testing the water. 

Practicing their English, introducing themselves one another

Today, they are only to introduce to one another asking simple questions such as:

  1. What's your name?
  2. Where do you live?
  3. Where do you come from?
  4. What do you do?
  5. What're your hobbies?
  6. What do you want to be someday?
These are the same questions we ask to one of our janitors in our institution (SEE: A Multi-talented janitor who speaks English)

The questions somehow develop to a next stage when the answers are given. The students instinctively ask questions related to the answers they get, making the conversation much longer and more complex since they have made new questions out of the questions we ask them to ask one another. 

The class was fun. Laughter heard everywhere contributes to a less pressure condition making the students feel comfortable and easy to practice their English.
