Some ESL conversation questions in the lesson include:
Do you ever travel alone? Why or why not? Who is your favorite travel buddy? Why so? Have you ever been to any of the places mentioned on the previous page? If you could travel to one, which would you choose and why? How do you find your zen? Have you ever heard of tapas? Can you think of any tapa equivalents in your home country or other countries you've been to? What do you think of bar-hopping? Would you enjoy it? Why or why not? Have you ever people-watched? What's a good place to go people-watching?
people-watching (in Paris, France): the activity of watching other people, especially in public places
I love to go people-watching in Paris, France. It's the perfect place to sit back at a cafe and observe a wide variety of fascinating people, culture, and fashion.
bar hop/pub crawl (in Dublin, Ireland): to visit several pubs, one after the other, having a drink or drinks at each one
I like to go bar hopping in Dublin. There are so many bars and friendly people there, so it's easy to make new friends if I am traveling alone.
tapas: small amounts of Spanish food that are served, especially with alcoholic drinks, in Spanish bars and restaurants
tapas (bar) crawl (in Barcelona, Spain): to visit several pubs, one after the other, having a drink or drinks and a tapa dish at each bar.
I love to do tapas crawls when I solo travel. The general rule for tapas crawls is to have one tapa and one drink at each location.
zen (in Great Smoky Mountains, Tennessee, USA: a state of coolness only attained through a totally laid-back type of attitude
I like to find my zen when I solo travel in nature. My favorite place is the Great Smoky Mountains because they have over 150 trails and amazing views.
