Question Ping-pong

This created some really good conversations last week - but needed a tiny tweak in the rules - see below - let’s give that a go this week!

Come with a conversational question - and make it a question you’d like to answer yourself :wink: e.g.

What did you do on Friday? :sunny: :surfing_man:
Tell me about your animals? :cat: :dog2:

The Game :ping_pong:

Pick a person !who hasn’t had a question yet!
Ask them your question;
They answer it and ask it you back!
Then it’s their turn. :man_cartwheeling: :dancer:

Chat

What’s been happening with you this week?..and what about next week?

Free for all…

Gossip, show and tell, play a game, tell a joke, anything you like!

I have a Yes-No game i would like try - if we have time.

It’s 12 noon, Saturday. All welcome! :sunny:

All activities are just for fun - and only if you want to - listen if you like - no stress - long or short answers, which can br real or imaginary! :sunny:

( Let me know if you want to join us and I’ll send you the link)

Yes-No Question Ping-pong!

Come with a conversational question - and make it a question you’d like to answer yourself :wink:.

We are practicing Yes or No answers this week -

So ask a question which requires an initial:

Do/ Naddo,
Oes/ Na(g oes), or present tense answer
ydy, ydw, ydyn etc…

Examples

Did you go to the pub last Friday? :beers:
…No because I was watching a film on Netflix!
Do you have a garden? :sunflower:
…Yes, but I live in a flat so it is shared.
Are you still going to Wales next week? :sunny:
…Yes, at least I’m hoping to be able to go.

You might have an answer to one of the following - and the answer maybe true or false! :thinking: We might ask you a couple of questions before we guess True or False!

  • where you got into trouble
  • a funny story or situation
  • something you are proud of
  • a coincidence that happened to you
  • a secret you want to share!

The whole thread from the date of the change of the forum to Discourse now appears under the title of Yorkshire Learners Group. And it all came to me as one giant message.
I’m puzzled!

Hi!

Trying to be a bit more confident. Do the weekly zooms still happen on a Saturday for the Leeds meet up? I’ve been trying to do the listening exercises and struggling. Wondering if speaking with actual people would be better! :slight_smile:


#359

Hi @carillewelynjones

Blwyddyn newydd dda! :tada:

Yep still going! In fact we are trying an experiment this week where the ‘Leeds meeting’ is at 11 and runs straight into the ‘Zoom at Noon’ which is open to all-comers.

Personally I think that real conversations with people, combined with SSIW material, is a rocket ship trip to speaking and understanding

… see you there!

Hi All Yorkshire Group,

As Wales Wheelchair Rugby League Team Manager can I remind you that 2021 Is Rugby League Wold Cup year and Wales Wheelchair Rugby League team will be based in Sheffield for all their group games and (hopefully) the semi-finals. It would be great to see some of the Yorkshire Group at the games - a chance to support Wales and chat in Welsh!

PS…This won’t be the last time I’ll be here reminding you and updating details!!
