ESL Conversation Topic - 30 Travelling Questions

Updated on April 23, 2015

30 conversation questions about travelling. This activity is suitable for pair work, group work or mingling. Adults and teenagers really enjoy this activity.

If the class is very lethargic, I use this activity as a questionnaire and get the students to move about collecting the data. It always works!
