Speed talk




Students walk around each other when the teacher says “stop” they need to find a partner. The teacher asks an academic question that needs to be discussed. When the teacher says “go” the students walk around again and find a new partner when the teacher says “stop”. Then the same or a different question is discussed. In foreign languages they could discuss stories that they have studied.


You can use ‘walk and talk’ to add to the activity. Here the students are in pairs for a longer time and discuss several academic questions on their walk.
