20 questions is a fun icebreaker to use on your first day. It can also be used as a warm-up activity. This was a fun group of students to teach. You can see that they were enjoying themselves too.

This can be used as a warm up activity for teaching ESL or as an icebreaker. It's fun as it gets students up, talking and moving about the classroom.


To do this create a list of questions like:

  • Who has been to France?
  • Who likes chicken?
  • Whose favorite color is green?
  • Who likes apples, but not oranges?
  • Who is learning Japanese?
  • Who doesn't like to play computer games?
  • Have students stand and circulate around the room and ask each other the questions
  • Have them write the students name down when they answer yes to the question
