Hello to you! I have English partners on Skype and we have already tackled about exchanging cultures, about telling about ourselves, and about what we both noticed on our English grammars and pronunciation.
Can you suggest me some interesting topics that can be discuss with my partner?
Thanks a lot!
- travelling, vacations
- fashion, different styles
- your counries/cities
- movies, music, literature
- different cuisines
- world news
- photos, architecture, design
- your work/study
- funny stories from your childhood
It seems there are many topics to speak about :) Usually when I talk with my language partners the topics appear by itself during the conversation :)
This is a good site. If you click on each topic, it will give you a list of questions you can ask:
How about the following?
Daily Routine, Holidays and Travel, Work and Study, Food and Drink, Local celebrations, Passtimes and Hobbies, Internet and Social Media, Inventions, Shopping, Television and Film.
The best formula to learn English by a meeting is to give your members good "arguments" to do brainstorm.
Any topic that can arouse members to think in different ways is a good practice considering English learning.
Take "dream" as a good example: the host can give more than one thing to deep thinking by sprawling:
"Do you think dream is the thing that you are wishing for but not reachable yet"
"Is there connection between dream and reality"
"Do you think daydream is unnecessary for a young men who desires for a broad territory"
"Can you remember what dream you have had in the past and what you were given by dreaming"
..... and so forth
The key issue in the meeting is whether you can provoke members' imagination to think far and wide and express it out clearly with English.
