Brief Outline

A conversation activity that allows all the students to use all the language from the unit whilst interacting with as many people as possible.

 

Materials Needed (not included)

  • Occupation cards - large A4 size to practice vocabulary before the activity starts.
  • Occupation cards - small cards randomly marked in the corners with an 'O', 'X' or '?' symbol.

 

Detailed Explanation

  1. After handing out a small occupation card to each student (which they should keep hidden), students walk around the room until they find a partner.
  2. The pair says in unison, "What do you want to be? 1 2 3...", and each throws a Janken sign.
  3. The winner asks again, "What do you want to be?". The loser answers based on the card they are holding.
  4. After reversing the roles, they swap cards and find another partner.

 

Variations

  • Instead if the student answering the question, have them mime the occupation.  The student who asked the question has to guess what the occupation is. 
  • Change the question from an open-question to a closed-question: "Do you want to be a XXX?".  The 'XXX' is the job on the card the 'asker' is holding.  Students answer honestly.
  • Instead of the students answering honestly, they must answer based upon the mark on the card they're holding: O=Yes, I do. / X=No, I don't. / ?=Maybe.
  • Change the question to: "I want to be a XXX. How about you?". Student answers honestly.
  • Change the question to: "I want to be a XXX How about you?". Student answers based on the mark on their card.
  • Change the question to: "I don't want to be a XXX. How about you?".

 

Teaching Suggestions

  • Make the students ask only people outside their own group (han 班), gender, etc. 
  • Make it a race to see how many students they can ask in x amount of minutes.
  • Line the students up and make it a relay race. Each person asks the person behind them, until they have all asked/been asked.
  • Select a "king" card from the large cards. At random intervals, stop the activity and the people who have the "king" card must say the word and do the gesture for the class.

 

Tips/Cautions

  • For challenging or unmotivated students, keep a couple of  under-the-table cards (video game character, TV star, hobbies, etc.) in your pocket.  It's better to have them join in than be disruptive.
  • Some students won't be able to remember all the words, so let them answer with gestures.
  • Sometimes, both students will have the same card. In that case they have to scream the name of the job whilst doing the gesture instead of swapping cards.
