The learner can ask and give information.


  • Blackboard
  • For each learner a copy with the questions


Make a list with frequently asked questions, e.g.
What are you good at?
What is your passion?
What can I wake you up for?
What will you be doing in five years?
What did you want to be when you were a kid?
Have I seen you before?
Do you believe in God?


  • Write the questions on the blackboard or give each learner a copy with the questions.
  • Ask the learners if these questions are also frequently asked in their native country.
  • Ask if they find any of the questions awkward, too personal, original, silly…
  • Ask them to add a FAQ.


To go deeper into the subject, you can ask the following questions:
Do you ask personal questions?
What is your answer to personal questions?
