Kindly suggest preferable topics...

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!

I like it when my partners show me videos of their countries.  Some, like this one on a place in the Phillipines, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7kAPnERkrw, are good with the sound turned off.  Just use ¨share your screen¨ on Skype and pause the videos frequently.  Each scene can be discussed.  In addition to learning about places and cultures, the pictures sometimes have many things in them so that you can teach each other new words.  My partners and I ask each other questions about everything we see in the pictures, trying to find any objects that we might not know the names of and sharing them with each other.

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.
