ESL Conversation Questions About Video Games

Instructor: Sarah Mills

Sarah is an educational freelance writer and has taught English and ESL in grades k-12 and college. She has a master's degree in both Literacy and TESOL.

In this lesson, teachers will learn how to use conversation questions about video games with English as a Second Language (ESL) students. A list of sample discussion questions will be included.

Discussing Video Games

One way to encourage ESL students to expand their vocabulary and enhance oral language development is to provide them with high-interest topics that they have a lot to say about. One of those topics is video games.

Video games are a popular American pastime for children, adolescents, and even adults. Some people play video games for hours on end, getting lost in the challenge and entertainment aspect of the gaming world. Others like to play video games occasionally to unwind after a long day.

Whatever the reason, giving ESL students discussion questions about their video game experiences, preferences, and opinions will encourage authentic conversations. Here are some questions to consider using with your ESL students:
