Money conversations

This is a lesson based on money, though students’ own attitudes can be kept private if they so desire. And it can remain so, but as a conversation topic, money is a veritable gold mine!

A good conversation lesson can often begin with the students not being sure what the topic of the day is. Not that we want to keep them in the dark for long, but it can get their attention when things aren’t so clear from the outset. But when I teach this lesson I introduce the topic directly, simply to give me a chance to point out that nobody will be required to discuss personal matters related to money.  We don’t need to know how much money you’ve got or earn, I may tell them. It can be a relief, on occasions, to those who do consider this a very private matter.
