Conversation Activities: This link takes you to a page that describes my worksheets. My worksheets are all conversation activities that make ideal additions to any lessons presenting similar target language.

These activities present to students various speaking skills. For example, The Optimist-Pessimist-Realist worksheets provides topics for discussion in which 3 students each approach the topic from one of the three view points. Each view point requires a certain skill. Students often find realist much more difficult than the optimist or pessimist view point.
