My ESL students needed an activity where they could practice their English in a more formal way, so I arranged for administrators and teachers to come by during their conference period, to talk to them. I sent an email to them so they could preview the questions and be prepared with their answers. Prior to this, the students got to practice with each other. The students asked the questions and the adults responded with the stems provided, that say "Response." Also, sometimes some students struggled to spell things, so on the board I wrote basic communication phrases like "Can you repeat that again?", "Can you spell it for me?" (I include this in the file), and I also provided the alphabet on the board since I have some students that are insecure.
The Interview was a success, as we provided the questions and the sentence stems for the students to be able to communicate. Ultimately, my kids enjoyed it and thought it was a great activity where they got to practice their English skills!
