A great book full of conversational questions for ESL classes, slumber parties, keeping people awake on long roar trips, finding out everything about your friends or interviewing new employees.

Hundreds of questions to survey the landscape of your life.

About the book:
Where would you take a gorilla on a date?
Who would you like to be stuck in an elevator with for three hours?
If cannibals caught you, how would you like to be cooked?

1004 questions await your answers. Use them for truth or dare, interviewing new employees, slumber parties, or for keeping your partner awake when driving late at night. The book is divided into six major sections:

Choice: From whose lips would you like to drink your fill of wine?
Past: Have you broken any bones (not necessarily your own)?
Present: What sin are you most familiar with?
Possible: If they were coming for you, where would you hide?
Spouse: What food best describes your spouse?
Opinion: Beside what entry in the dictionary would you find your picture?

Available online from: http://www.wheatmark.com and other Internet booksellers like Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.

Why would any teacher need help thinking of questions they can ask their students??

Because any teacher worth his / her salt will realise the value of external input and their own limitations.It would also help if they saw things from another's perspective and were interested in relating questions to the educational language needs of their students
