Fluency lesson: When did you first...?

This fluency lesson allows for the teacher to tailor the conversation to the level of the student.  Each page on the PowerPoint has an image and the rest of the question of 'When did you first...'.  If a student or class are beginners, the lesson can be done fairly quickly and be used as a supplement to a grammar lesson.  If the students are at a higher level, the teacher can use these questions as a springboard to free conversation.  Ideally, the teacher should allow the students to lead the conversation and just be quiet and listen for errors so that the teacher can give proper feedback.  This lesson can be used successfully in a virtual classroom and a traditional classroom.  The following is an example of a lesson with a small multicultural group in google hangouts:
