Teaching Questions CAN be Fun

Forming questions can be a horrifying task for learners! Especially when they have to do it orally in front of class. Getting learners to speak in L2 can be tricky.¬†They either find¬† addressing a classmate to whom they’re used to speaking in L1 weird. They feel embarrassed to make mistakes. Speaking however is the skill required the most in real life. Role play can make learners feel detached, creates a distance from mistakes made. The Spanish teachers of English who created the video I am suggesting you watch are presenting games you can play in class to teach forming questions and practise speaking at the same time. The “coffee pot” game in particular is very funny and works well with learners, as it is drilling in disguise.
