Have your students role play their speaking for ten different beach visual situations that are part of a beach story. Your students, in pairs, become the people in this beach story. They interact with each other in the target language; they react, question, elaborate, disagree, contrast, complain, or persuade in each of the ten frames. Since the role play is based on visuals, not words, this role play can be used in any modern language such as Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. Student speak spontaneously.
