ESL Conversation Questions: How was your weekend? What did you do last weekend?


Hi Jenny, how was your weekend?

Great, we had a girl’s night out on Friday! We left the husbands and boyfriends at home with the kids and hit the town.

What? You went to see the Chippendales?

No, no, nothing like that. There were just five of us and went for a meal at an Indian restaurant, then we went dancing at a small club just off Regent’s Street.

Nice. How come you didn’t invite me?

Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t think that you were into that sort of thing.

But I love dancing! Next time you have a girl’s night out, let me know!

Yes of course I will. You can meet my friends, they are a great bunch!

OK, so when can we do it?

My boyfriend’s not gonna like it if we do it again next weekend, how about in a couple of weeks?

Sure, no problem. But no strip clubs though.

Of course not!

ESL Conversation Question: What’s the weather like (today)?, what’s the weather like in your country?

From Unit 7, the weather, climate in Questions for Conversation (free download)


It’s really hot again today, isn’t it?

Yes, but I don’t think it’s as hot as yesterday.

Probably not, but I can’t stand this heat anymore!

Do you know what the weather’s going to be like tomorrow?

It’s going to be hot again, unfortunately.

Well, it’s not that hot, where I come from it can be much hotter.

Where do you come from?

I’m from Texas.

What’s the weather like in Texas?

Well, it’s a big state and the weather varies from one place to another. It’s hot and humid in the west, and hot and dry in the east.

I don’t think I’d like to live in Texas!

Did I forget to mention the tornadoes and hurricanes?

I think I’ll stay here in London!

Hey Tyler, do you have a pet?

Sure do. I’ve got a dog. A Doberman. What about you?

I’ve got two cats, Tibbles and Fluffy. Which animals do you think make the best pets? Cats? Or dogs?

Dogs, obviously. I wouldn’t have one if I didn’t think that dogs were better than cats.

Yeah, of course. But dogs are dirty and smelly and they crap and pee everywhere. Cats are clean and always smell nice. I’d hate to have to scoop the poop every day.

Responsible dog owners clean up after their dogs, that’s true, and it’s not that pleasant. But dogs are much more fun, you can play with them and train them to do tricks.

You’re right. I just don’t like the fact that dogs demand a lot of time and energy. Cats are independent, and I like that. I don’t want to have an animal that follows me everywhere I go.

I don’t agree. It’s great to have a companion. They say that dogs are man’s best friend, and it’s true. They are loyal, never take offence, accept you for who you are. Not like humans!

Problems with the girlfriend again?

You could say that.

At least you’ve got your dog to talk to.

Yeah. He’s more sympathetic than the girlfriend!
