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.
Student One and Student Two are friends. Student One is a very good driver who follows all the laws, but Student Two is quite lazy and breaks many laws. Student One is worried that Student Two will get hurt or in trouble.
Student One and Student Two are husband and wife. You are both talking about your son taking his driver’s test. Student One thinks the son should wait to get his license, but Student Two disagrees because driving is important.
Student One is a doctor. Student Two is seeing the doctor because he or she was in a car accident. Student Two always drives poorly, but doesn't realize it. The doctor should tell Student Two that he or she should drive safely or Student Two could get really hurt.
Student One often doesn’t wear a seat belt, but always drives safely. Student Two explains to Student One that he or she should always wear a seat belt even if he or she is a safe driver.
Do the activity again, but this time, work with a different partner.
