Talk time: first lesson speed dating
Key stage
Resource type
First lesson
Role play/debate/discussion

This activity is good to use as an icebreaker at the beginning of the school year. With EAL learners or language classes, you can use the questions provided as a diagnostic tool to find out what students know.

The questions can also be tweaked according to subject and age groups. Ideas for subject-specific questions are included.

The activity is particularly good for classes with students from mixed backgrounds as it can reveal interesting cultural differences.

A version for teaching English as a foreign language is available here: Talk time ... a variation on speed dating.
