Group Discussion Topic: Celebrities

Hey everyone!  Here are the lexis and questions for our discussion groups!  The questions are limited this week, so this time it will be the same lexis and questions for all groups!  If you are a student of mine, I hope to see you at one of the discussion groups!  If anybody (student or not) has any questions about this blog, please let me know!  Thanks!

This week we had kind of an interesting discussion group: we shared experiences with each other.  Not only the teacher but also the students asked each other questions, using a set pattern: “Have you ever…?”  The students were given a set of example questions to look at and we went from there!  Many of the students came up with their own unique and original questions, and we all had a good time talking about our lives.

This coming week we will be talking about celebrities!  Here is a list of the lexis and possible questions which we may use during the lesson:
