You can write out an introduction based on your discussion and have students practice it with each other in class. Rather than having their interviewees write answers on the survey, students should ask their questions and then write down the responses they get.
(It’s a language activity, after all.)Back in class, have students assimilate and represent their data and present it to the class.
In fact, it’s possible to assign homework to your ESL students that will have them begging for more. For homework, that student will call another student and relay the story to him or her.
Not when the stories are all fabricated for the sake of language learning.
If you have, you know part of the fun is in just how subjective the game is.
And sending students on a photo scavenger hunt can encompass the same type of fun.
Start by helping your students write a survey they’ll use for their interviews.
Students can choose a topic or you can assign one, like leisure activities or celebrity news.
Once students have their list, have them work with two other students to choose the three to five best questions to include on their survey.
Students should type up their questions and make one copy for each person they intend to interview. As a class, discuss how students might introduce themselves to a person they encounter and would like to interview.
