Hi Liss.

I find that when a student is ready for their first "discussion", that is face to face using words from their head then, weather is an easy subject.

Normally I provide a list of subject mater that can be considered about 2 weeks before the discussion.

For example "Weather" can include comparing your local / national ( I live in Thailand ) with my own ( I come from UK originally ).   Family stories / tales about how to tell what the weather is going to be like e.g. what are the ants, or cows or birds doing; what is the wind, temperature doing ?    You can then go on to discuss how the weather affects farmers, local business, transport, prices and supply of goods.   Vocabulary can be as simple or as difficult as your ability.   It is really surprising just "How much you know, and how long you can discus" this subject.

Give it a go sometime.

Good luck.


Please just think about your interests.
