Why Ask Social Media Questions?

Are your ESL students sometimes reluctant to engage in the conversational prompts you give them? If this is something you are struggling with as a teacher, you might consider topics that are current and relevant to your students. One topic that students of a variety of ages are often interested in is social media. Thinking about social media can get different kinds of students excited and engaged with one another. Because it is a popular topic, social media can spark just the kind of controversy that leads to vigorous discussion and engaging conversational practice. If you want to get your students talking and listening to each other about social media, the questions in this lesson will be of help to you. You can pose these questions to your students or give them a chance to ask each other these things. You might be surprised just how much your students have to say on this very current and exciting topic!
