Try the free February Q & A Sheet
first, and if you love it, get a great deal with the full year bundle. It includes all twelve of my monthly Q & A Sheets plus all featured activities, as well as the organizer list of themes and activities.
Q & A Sheets can be printed out for your use. They are not meant to be handouts for students.
'A Year of Q & A Sheets' is one .zip file with all twelve months of my Q & A Sheets in .doc format and A4 size.
Lesson materials are in American English. Of course, these can be edited if you'd like.
Q & A Sheets are intended for one on one private lessons with adult students who want to improve English conversation skills, But they can also be used as warm ups for classrooms if students work in pairs – especially when everyone is paired with a student who has a different native language.
The Q & A Sheets are split into up to four different groups on one page – this is for weekly lessons. There are around ten questions or lines for each lesson. Of course, some students might fly through a whole Q & A Sheet in one lesson. (Try to encourage those students to answer in more detail, not just say 'yes' or 'no.') Students can practice asking you for your answer by repeating the question or asking 'How about you?' for example. For students who are better speakers, they'll have no trouble explaining answers in details. You can even ask follow up questions.
These Q & A Sheets are what I use for my private conversation lessons. Students get lots of speaking time and get to have more authentic conversations on interesting topics, so they love it! It's easier for me because I just print out one sheet for a whole month and use it for all of my students. The Q & A Sheet for each month will introduce a topic and a few questions, then all I have to do is listen and engage in a fun conversation.
