This assignment is a brief (7 question) interview to get ELL students speaking English the very first day of class. It also helps students write more interesting and expanded sentences on the first day of class.
Students will begin with a simple sentence like Juan is a student and later write Juan is a seventeen year old student from Panama.
This is a great activity to have students feel immediate success in English. Can be used with newcomers and Level 1 and 2s (pushes Level 2s to always think about how to write expanded and complex sentences). *Tip - Have students fold the paper along the line and ask the interview questions. Then unfold to have students write sentences using information from their interview.
