Speed dating learning activity romance dating online for singles
Pupis sit on desks (one boy to one girl) and have five minutes time to ask each other these questions. Some nice back ground music makes it a bit more authentic. This is a speaking activity that I made for my teenage classes on Valentine’s Day, but you could do it anytime.Without using any notes, they had to write the answer to the questions based on the information they had just learnt.When finished, they swapped their answers with a partner and marked it with the use of a mark scheme.Speed dating has been popular in larger metropolitan areas in recent years.The people attending one recent speed dating session in a city say while they love their city, they all feel it is hard to meet new people.Each student had to move around the room and meet with another student (but not one who also had the same question as them).
When the speed dating was finished, the 7 questions were all put up on the board.The conversations between students demonstrated their understanding of their question and by the end of the lesson their knowledge of all of the topics had improved quite dramatically.It made a nice change for them to learn from each other in quite an informal manner and getting them to walk around after small bursts of learning rather than sitting for a prolonged period behind a desk!Also, some of the information is local to where I live so perhaps you should consider changing that too. The activity worked well for the vast majority of my classes.This project is for introducing oneself and starting conversations. If you have an unbalance amount of either boys and girls some will have to change their sex.The time was controlled via a stopwatch application on the internet and shown on the board with a buzzer sound signifying the end of the learning ‘date’.In total they had 6 speed dates (so each of the other questions was covered).This enabled them to cross reference their new understanding with model responses.This enabled students to identify and subsequently ‘fill’ any knowledge gaps that they may still have had.(There are 24 in the group so roughly 3 students per question.) They were given 5 minutes to create a ‘perfect’ answer to the question using their own knowledge, their notes, their textbooks and each other.After the 5 minutes were up, the speed dating began.
