A list of 55 questions for EAL/ESOL students - Speaking /Vocabulary - Term plan

55 questions organised into popular and relevant themes. Each topic includes a creative task to assist with cementing understanding. The questions are based on Blooms taxonomy and aim to extend higher thinking in the student's second language. I use this resource at the beginning of my one on one lessons. I ask a question each lesson and work through the list. It's a productive and highly organised way to promote speaking skills. Each topic has five questions.
