Chances are that your international students are sometimes mystified by what we consider to be good or poor manners, and you’ve likely inadvertently done something they would consider rude. Learning what constitutes etiquette and manners in different cultures is especially important when you have a diverse class to avoid misunderstandings. These topic cards are meant to not only engage your students and get them talking, but also to make them think and to reflect.
Find out what they think and encourage them to use varied expressions for sharing and asking for opinions as well as agreeing and disagreeing. (You may be interested in my Expressions for Opinions resource to ensure that your ESL students can use a good variety of expressions.)
Whether you are teaching a unit on etiquette/manners or just need a relatable discussion topic, you’ll be glad to have these topic cards.
