The next time you’re stuck coming up with a good conversation starter while practicing your English, try picking something from this list of 24 ESL conversation questions for adults (update: here are another 84 conversation questions).You can even print the questions out so you can easily reference them. How do you think your friends’ family relationships compare to ours? Is there anything you wish our family would do together more often? Is there anything about them that might be a “red flag” or you’re not sure about? How old do you think you have to be to fall in love?
Having conversations about topics such as relationships, values, and spirituality can be helpful for your child and strengthen your relationship with them at the same time.
Ask them to go out for ice cream or run errands with you, and use the one-on-one time to ask one or two of these questions.
Don’t ask too many of these at once, but instead try to use them as a starting point for a more in-depth conversation.
When you’re having a conversation with a fellow ESL student, it can sometimes be challenging to get started.
Even if you and your classmate are great conversationalists in your native language, you may have trouble coming up with questions to ask each other that will lead to more than just a one-sentence response in English.
