Some of days ago we talked in class about the most frequent places to have a couple discussion. And the car won. That night I designed this role-play and we performed it the following day. We didn’t focus on language, nor on accuracy, but on fluency. And we all enjoyed.
Role-plays are working very well in my classes this year. Feeling that they are somebody different, makes them overcome shyness and speak much more.
The slide might not be very clear, the left side is for one student, and the right side for another one. I didn’t give them any time to prepare their role. I arranged couples randomly, avoiding “fixed partnerships”.
