Part One

Students work with a partner and decide which person is going to be Student One, and who is going to be Student Two. For each of the situations listed below, the pair of students should read the information and then create an improvised dialogue about the situation. When finished, students are to go on to the next situation.

This is a speaking activity and should not require any writing or preparation by the students.

Situation 1 Situation 2 Situation 3 Situation 4

Student One and Student Two are class mates. Student One is very active but Student Two is quite lazy. Student One is worried that Student Two is dragging down the pilots course.

Student One and Student Two are Captain and First Officer. You are both concerned that your transpacific flight will encounter poor weather. Student One thinks the aircraft should remain on it’s current flight plan, student two disagrees because the latest weather forecast indicates extreme weather ahead.

Student One is a flight surgeon. Student Two is seeing the flight surgeon because he or she requires a flight physical. Student Two always times out on their physical because he or she is too lazy to book the physical in a timely manner. The flight surgeon suggest to Student Two that he will book the next three years appointments to ensure that Student Two physical will remain valid.

Student One often asks Student Two to check the aircraft weight and balance. Student Two explains to Student One the he or she follows the weight and balance charts faithfully and ensures the aircraft is always within limits.

Part Two

Do the activity again, but this time, work with a different partner.
