Relationship Discussion Questions for ESL Students

Instructor: Matthew Hamel

Matt has degrees in Journalism and Business and has taught a variety of courses at high schools and universities around the world.

Because relationships are a common topic of conversation, English as a Second Language (ESL) students need the language tools to converse confidently about relationships. This lesson provides teachers with relationship-related discussion questions for classroom use.

Relationship Talk

People use language to communicate for a variety of practical reasons, such as to do their jobs, gain an education, buy products or services, exchange information or ideas, and participate in a community. Perhaps, most importantly, people use language to build relationships with friends and family.

When English as a Second Language (ESL) students communicate in relationships, they need relevant vocabulary and grammar tools to confidently and accurately express their opinions in English. Knowledge of these tools can be developed through the discussion of varied relationship-related topics. This lesson suggests some discussion topics that you can use in different ways with your students.
