Speed dating lesson resources adult dating hopkinton massachusetts
This is a speaking activity that I made for my teenage classes on Valentine’s Day, but you could do it anytime.
It’s based on the concept of speed dating so you will need to organize the seats in 2 rows, with guys on one side and girls on the other.
I've been asking for help a lot recently so thought I'd give something back in the form of an activity I did with a class of 4me that worked very well.
It's called 'Speed Dating' and is basically exactly what it says on the tin.
