Brief Outline: Students practice their self-introduction to find their dance partner(s).


Materials Needed:

  • WillYouDance worksheets: The three worksheets include listening, speaking and an optional writing exercise (NOTE: for Total English textbook users, students should have already learned all the grammar points used for this game. For teachers who use other textbooks, it would be best to reword the questions for the listening exercise).


Detailed Explanation:

  1. Listening Exercise: ALT will read each question slowly and students will circle their answers. Make sure students understand all the questions.For question number six, students are encouraged to write their own opinions about Anpanman (the red bean Japanese animated hero) or anyone the teacher chooses.  
  2. Writing:Have students write their answers on the introduction/ profile. Students can make up their name/ age. Then have students fill out # 1-6 according to their answers from the listening exercise.
  3. Main Activity: Let’s find your dance partner(s)
    • Give students a few minutes to practice their introduction with a partner, group or as a class.
    • Each student will introduce his/herself to another person. The speaker should not show the listener his/ her introduction and the listener could take notes of what the speaker is saying. (This activity is for speaking practice so it doesn’t matter if students are taking notes in English or Japanese).
    • Students find their partner(s) by counting how many similar interests they share together. Students are able to dance with the people they have 3+ similar interests (items) with.
  4. Optional Writing Exercise: Depending on how much time you have left, encourage students to challenge themselves by answering the questions.


Teaching Suggestions:

  • This activity could be confusing if you don’t do it right. Therefore, for each part of the activity, blow up the worksheets and put the sheets on the chalkboard and show students how to do it.
