40 questions to practice speaking at this beginning level.
I use this as an activity, but you may use it as an oral exam if you wish.
I cut up the questions into strips .
I hand out all the questions. ( Duplicates are fine- more practice)
I give all students a number 1-34 if you have a class of 34 for example .
I put the entire class into pairs and have Partner A ask the other the question he/she has on the paper.
The other partner also asks his/her question.
After about a minute I ring a bell ( gong) the partners SWITCH questions and the even number (or odd) moves on to the next partner.
I call it "RATATA PATATA.".. because they keep moving on to the next partner.
They love this activity before an oral test and it keeps them moving.
