Trivia Questions 1
Trivia can be a fun class activity saved for a special day. At our 2016 Careers in Language Fair we held a round of trivia that had students extremely active and excited. The questions are a mix of pop culture, history, and general knowledge about Japan.
We suggest making a powerpoint with trivia questions to keep the flow and not leave questions up for too long.
