    Default Concept questions

    I am not a teacher. I am a learning about concept questions.

    Could someone give me some advice on this question that I need to devise useful concept questions please.

    E.g. "By this time next year I will have graduated".

    #2 is ok as far as it goes, but just imagine if someone asked you that question...doesn't it look incomplete to you?
    #1 is OK, but not as a first question.

    Are you doing a TEFL course? If you are it would be better for you to try to find more examples yourself.

    Default Re: Concept questions

    Yes sir I am. I think once I figure out the importance of questions I shoud be asking then I will understand it more. Useful questions/questions to avoid etc.

    E.g Are they in their final year?
    What did they graduated in?
    Where did they graduated?
    Unsure if these type of questions are useful or not?
