Activities/conversation to promote English

What activities and/or conversational topics would you use to promote English to learners of other languages? I would love to hear your ideas.

Well, you have left the field wide open but since you posted this under Business English I would always recommend getting students to give presentations (and having the others offer feedback). Check out the following which has some free teacher resources at the end: ... ations.htm

I have found that you can do practically anything with a business English class, so long as it produces results.

I particularly like to get students writing 5-minute e-mails for homework. The short time limit means they can find the time to do it and it is simialr to the amount of time they would spend on a minor email in their own language.

If you would like some more ideas check out this website;
All the best,
