This ESL/ESOL resource contains 50 debate questions on individual cards to get students to give their opinions on a range of topics.

NOTE: These questions are intended for ADULT ESL learners though almost all of the questions are suitable for TEENAGERS too. Having said this, you can remove or not use some of the cards that you think are not age appropriate. I recommend downloading the preview so you can see the list of 50 questions that appear on these cards or watch the video to see these topics.

There are MANY ways these conversation starters can be used in the English classroom. Ideally you would laminate these conversation cards so they can be used over and over again in class.

There are 50 questions so you could use one or two a week either as a speaking activity or as writing prompts.

These cards can also be used as warm-ups at the beginning of a class.
