Convince Me - ESL Persuasive Speaking Card Activity


This is a fantastic way to practice critical thinking and persuasive speech in ESL and EFL classrooms. Each situation card has a matching partner card so that your students cantry to convince and persuade the student with the response card. This speaking activity is perfect for Pre-intermediate to Intermediate level ESL classes. Try to encourage your students to think outside the box in their responses.
Before playing make sure to discuss useful vocabulary such as "should, could, have you thought of". Distribute the cards to your students. This is a partner activity that can be done in front of the entire class or discussed between two partners. Start with Card A. One student will have to argue his/her point and try to convince and persuade the student with the response card. As a timed activity you can give students 1-2 minutes to discuss and try to persuade their partner.
