I realise that I’m introducing this class idea in mid-February, which isn’t a time when very many new classes begin. Then again, it’s a blog – and who said blogs had to be logical eh?

Anyway, this is an icebreaker and getting to know you activity for new group of students, ideally for use in the second or third class. They will practise question formation – of both open and closed questions.

This class can also be used as a group formation activity, allowing students to share and discuss the experiences they have had in their city. They will be able to compare and contrast their lives, and get to know each other a little better. They’ll also get some presentation practice in, and that’s always a good thing.
