I,ve been working with the E.P.I.K. pragram in Korea. I've been working in middle schools. Its hard trying to get the students to speak. This is a common activity suitable for overcrowded classes.
First you introduce a question and answer. For example "what are you doing"? Answer " I'm studying engish". You go to one of the rows either the far left or far right and instuct the students to ask the question to their neightbor. Then they answer the question and asks the same question to their neightbor.This activity continues until the question works its wasy across the room.You keep feeding the rows questions that progressivly get more difficult.
