Tip: Phone Conversations
Role-play phone conversations back-to-back. Give pairs a card with 2 roles and a topic (e.g. Lincoln & Douglass talk about laws, or a cat & a dog talk about food, etc.) You can assign roles for what your are studying and offer sentence frames and key vocabulary lists for students who need more support.
Variations & Extensions
For students who are intermediate or advanced, they can “text” back-to-back essentially passing notes on small slips of paper back and forth to each other in character.
