Many ESL students have trouble telling the difference between the question words they hear. This leads English learners to answer questions incorrectly.
They mistake questions like “What do you need?” for “Why do you need it?” Or they think they hear “When are you going?” but they were actually asked “Where are you going?” To minimize misunderstandings, it’s good to practice the question words by saying them and hearing them.
Below are the instructions for a game that can help you practice these English question words. Play a few rounds of this with your friends, and you can become really fluent in English questionspeak.
