Trip Talk (Box of Questions)

Trip TalkAs we all know, most EFL & ESL students love traveling, especially abroad, which gives them an excellent opportunity to “try out” their English outside of the classroom.

Trip Talk is a new, interactive game filled with 82 easy-to-understand and fun-to-answer questions students can ask each other about travel experiences, opinions, wishes, complaints and preferences. The cards are thick, sturdy, colorful and beautiful with BIG print.

Trip Talk Questions include:

  • How many countries have you visited in your life?
  • Do you prefer a window or an aisle seat?
  • Have you ever gotten sick on vacation? Did you need to see a doctor?
  • Do you like to bring home souvenirs or do you prefer to travel light?
  • What’s the first thing you do when you return home from a trip?
  • What’s the longest vacation you ever took?
  • Where would you like to have a vacation home?
  • Would you rather spend the day lying on the beach or sightseeing?
  • What are the three things you MUST take on a vacation?
  • Have you ever made a friend on vacation?

Each student should receive about 10 cards and ask a person in the group one of the questions. The person called upon should answer and then ask another person a question. Additional comments and questions from members in the group are welcome. Laughter and interaction are generated from the questions, answers and comments from all members of the group.

Trip Talk is a great way to help students talk spontaneously about their travels in a natural, casual and friendly fashion.

Recommended level: Junior High to Adults
