[I already have one set of speaking topics for the past tense, but I had to invent another one when the school curriculum required me to revisit the past simple tense with a group of students who had already done the first set of cards. I posted these cards around the room. The students were then told to walk around the room with a partner, and discuss the various topics on the cards using the past simple.]

Talk about the first time you went to the cinema:
How old were you?
What movie did you see?
Who did you go with?
How did you feel about that movie?
(If you can’t remember the first time you went to the cinema, then just talk about the earliest movie experience that you can remember.)

What did you wear that day?
How did you get to school?
