getting to know you
Going back to school can be a fun, exciting time for kids. But it can also be a bit intimidating, especially if they’re going to a new school. This is often doubly true for students who are learning a new language! Put your English language learners at ease with an icebreaker activity so they can get to know their classmates. Doing an interview such as the one below will allow them to talk to a new classmate one-on-one, which is usually less intimidating. Later on, they can introduce that classmate to the rest of the class—that way, they will get to know all their classmates, and it’s also much easier to talk about someone else than it is to talk about yourself. Make sure you tell your students your own answers to these questions so they can get to know you, too!
We’ve prepared two printable worksheets (an American spelling version and British spelling version) so that teachers around the world can use this interview without having to make any changes.
