BRIEF OUTLINE: Students create their own dialogue based on the New Horizon's Speaking Plus 1 skit (book 2).



  • RolePlay handout: One per pair of students



  1. After handing out one worksheet per pair of students, go over any unfamiliar language.
  2. Demo a skit variation with the JTE.
  3. In pairs, students practice the skit switching roles.
  4. Encourage the students to change the language/sentences to their own ideas. Also, encourage the them to change their intonation to suit the mood of their skit and use actions where necessary. Set a time limit on this practice.
  5. In turns, students come to the front to perform their skit.
  6. The other students mark their performance one to five points.
  7. The best performance wins a prize.



  • My JTE wanted the students to only perform the skit to me. So when the pair of students felt they were finished I listened to their skit, gave comments and a sticker.



  • I prefer my idea though. If you have any suggestions please leave a comment below.
