- What kind of books do you like?

- What is your favorite book? Why?

- What was the last book you read?

- How many books have you read in your life?

- How many hours do you spend reading in a week?

- How often do you go to the library?

- Where is your favorite place to read?

- Do you often read books before going to bed?

- What factors are important to you when choosing a book to read?

- Have you ever read a book and then watched the movie? Which was better? Why?

- Do you believe reading books/literature is more important than reading stuff online? Why/why not?

- Do you think that the internet and television will eventually make books obsolete?


Part 2: Visual-based conversation.


Both students and volunteers are asked to find two visuals representing the picture of 2 books (e.g., Google images, their own pictures): one for Vietnam and the other for the volunteer’s country (2 photos or pictures for each person). They are also asked to prepare five discussion questions for each visual image.


Part 3: 


Give a summary of a book you’ve read, and discuss what you liked or disliked about it.


Part 4: Free talk.
