Simple but Effective

Posted on Updated on

I was having a look through some TOEIC lessons about analysing questions I did and found this conversation activity. I thought I would share. So, you give strips of paper out with each of the answers on them. The students (in pairs) must work together to come up with a flowing conversation that uses all the answers. There should also be room for a beginning and ending, too.


I am her/his girlfriend/boyfriend.

We were friends.

He was my limousine driver.

She cuts my hair.

We go jogging together.

We were drunk and fell over.

I’m sorry I can’t tell you that.

I was very scared.

I felt embarrassed.

I thought it was a stupid idea.

I thought he was gay.

Good morning.

Of course.
