Picture Prompts for Speaking and Writing: An ESL Activity

picture prompts speaking writing

Picture description activities can be rather boring after some time and it occurred to me that usually, the pictures are not very creative. I came up with an idea of how to spice it up a bit. The picture prompts for speaking and writing in this activity are unusual, imaginative and I hope they will spark some entertaining stories.

I recommend to use it with students 16+, it best works with young adults. It could be used with stronger Intermediate students, Upper Intermediate and Advanced.

As a variation, you can use it as writing prompts.
