IELTS Speaking Part One Question review
There are many games you can play with Worksheet 1. The simplest is to have a student close their eyes and put their finger down on an A3 piece of paper with the whole of Worksheet 1 photocopied onto it. Their classmates then ask them that question (with them listening to the question, not reading it) and then at least one additional question on the same topic. The same game can be played taking one card from a cut up pack. A slight variation is to get students to organize the cards by topic or time (past, present, or future), put them face down in the table organized into those sections, and then allow students to select a card from their chosen section.
