    Conversational Classes - Intermediate

    Ive just started a new class with a group of 3 lawyers - high intermediate level of English.

    We have 2 classes per work, so after some discussion about what they need Ive agreed to have one conversation-based class and the other with more focus, exercises and homework.

    Ive had conversational classes on a one-to-one level before, but with the number of people plus the higher level of English, Im looking for some ideas on how to run this one through. Each class lasts 1 hour. Im thinking of creating, over time, some varied conversation topic and question cards to be chosen at random for each class.... also will try and incorporate some subject-specific topics (law, finance, taxation.... for which Im hunting the web for resources !)

    In the meantime Im looking for inspiration!!

    All thoughts and ideas are welcomed, thanks!

    I Googled: ESP+law and this came up. Looks like it might have some ideas.

    Got this one from "legal vocabulary" :

    thank you very much ... I have already got that legal glossary, which Im starting to work through with them. The other link I will print now to look through.

    Im also looking for some simpler ideas as conversation starters... perhaps I should be looking at business conversation or something - will have a look at some more of the books I have access to.
