30 ESL conversation starters and speaking prompts - House and Home
Want your ESL students to use their HOUSE AND HOME vocabulary? This NO PREP activity is a fun way to encourage your low intermediate to advanced students to speak more. Just print and cut out the cards or use the easy to project file to show the cards one by one for a whole class activity or for when you don't want to print and cut out.

You can use it after learning specific vocabulary for the home or as a fun interactive activity on a day when you want to just focus on speaking and reviewing vocabulary in a different way.

There are 30 questions in all. All of the questions are asked in the YOU form and require the answering student to respond using I. Most of the questions begin with an interrogative word encouraging more than YES and NO responses. Most questions are in the present tense.

Topics used in these cards:
* Types of homes
* Rooms
* Furniture
* Household chores
* Preferences
