My class is of mixed ability so how can I get them talking to each other?

I suggest use a lot of "find someone who" type activities for mixed groups. That way, students have to talk to everyone in the class regardless of level, country etc. It makes for a very "homogenous" group because, after a while,  the stronger ones help the weaker ones and the weaker ones start to take more risks because you have set up a safe environment for them to speak in.

To find some of these activities,  go to the teachers' room at English-to-go , then click "search
library " in the left hand menu. Then type "find someone who"  into keyword search box. You will  find loads of lessons.
To find warmers with these activities, click on "search resources" in the left hand menu.
