Role Play Speaking Skills will help your ESL students increase fluency, vocabulary, and communicative ability!
Role plays are incredibly useful in the ESL classroom! These exercises can help students access and use vocabulary atypical in their own daily conversations, encourage quieter students to engage in conversation, and challenge otherwise private students to share their opinions. The best part about role play exercises is that students are talking and talking and talking – the entire time!
Unfortunately, the “roles” needed in role play exercises are difficult to find. I hope this one will be useful in your classroom!
