Talk for a minute


  1. Get into pairs or small groups.
  2. Take turns being the speaker and the listener.
  3. Choose a topic card.
  4. Start speaking about the topic on the card for one minute. Try to say as much as you can.
  5. The listener should pay attention and not interrupt the speaker.
  6. When one minute is up, switch roles. The listener becomes the speaker and vice versa.
  7. Repeat the process until both of you have spoken about different topics.

Remember, the goal is to practice speaking and listening skills, so don’t worry about making mistakes. Enjoy the activity and encourage each other’s efforts!
